singapore: life and death in venice

opening at hermès' third floor gallery space on thu - apr 1 is artist ming wong's exhibition life and death in venice. on display is a video installation that recreates luchino visconti's classic morte a venezia [1971]. the artist is the same age as the film but is 20 years too old or too young to be either one of the film's leading characters. the installation raises a self-reflective and biographical spin on the concept of 'arriving' and 'departing' in one’s artistic career and personal life and delves into his inner-self as he negotiates the consciousness of age, and both private and professional development. location: liat towers, 541 orchard road [orchard west]. © ming wong - video stills from life and death in venice
