Gan Siong King: My Video Making Practice presents recent video essays by Malaysian artist Gan Siong King. It features Kecek Amplifier Bersama Nik Shazwan, a video installation that explores the gamut from the production of bespoke electric guitar amplifiers in Malaysia to pre-millennial pop culture, and My Video Making Practice. The latter is a new work that provides a humorous reflection on Gan’s video practice. Screenings of My Video Making Practice will take place on select weekends, and will be accompanied by a dialogue session with the artist and a moderator. Gan’s video works often draw on the aesthetics and sensibilities of music videos, images and memes from internet video culture, as well as humour that is often found in Malaysian popular culture.
