Artists' Film Biennial: Next Year I Will Be Somewhere Else selected by artist Ming Wong

29 May 2016

A screening selected by Ming Wong, an artist working with performance, video and installation to explore cinematic histories and the politics of gender and representation.

The works selected by artist Ming Wong for this screening from Asia, Australia, and the Middle East involve some kind of 'reaching-out' beyond the boundaries of language, migrant histories, and social oppression; invariably reaching a point of the 'sublime', each in their own way through the poetics of image, song and cinema, celebrated on the big screen.

Ming Wong (b. 1971 in Singapore, lives and works in Berlin) works with performance, video and installation to explore cinematic histories and the politics of gender and representation. Recent solo exhibitions include Next Year / L’Année Prochaine, Ullens Center of Contemporary Art, Beijing (2015); Ming Wong: Angst Essen, Kunstraum Lakeside, Klagenfurt (2014); and Me in Me, Shiseido Gallery, Tokyo (2013). Recent group shows include the 20th Biennale of Sydney (2016);  Passion. Fan Behaviour and Art, Kunsthaus Nürnberg and Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin (both 2015); and Fassbinder – NOW, Martin-Gropius-Bau, Berlin (2015).
