Who is the predator and prey – Henry Chan

Smoking Bourdieux : Henry Chan


16 Joakim is 1, Chuyia is 6.

One view is that time is merely an abstract concept that we use to create a model of the world, a mathematical structure in much the same way as numbers

. The modern physics brings together the room´s dimensions and time to a common concept – spacetime.

We are inspired by the concept in relation of performativity, time-base process and numbers thinking and bring it to the exhibition

Performance art is now.
Performance art is live.
The time is only now.
The place is only here.
Performance art reveals itself in the present.

Coincidently, Joakim is 1st child in his family and Chuyia is 6th child in her family. The exhibition is all together16 days and both Joakim and Chuyia will make progressive actions in Rostrum with day-to-day program. In this extent viewer are encourage to visit the exhibition from time to time.

Chuyia Chia was trained from the School of Art Education (Malaysia), Nanyang Academy of Fine Art (Singapore), Curtin University of Technology (Australia) and Valand School of Art Gothenburg University (Sweden). Her exploration transacts between painting, installation, performance art and digital representative exploration. Her transaction was from the reflection of her self and cultural identity as an immigrant in the early 90s, later to recent years in global concern and attention to environmental responsibility, human connection and communication.
