Liu Chuang | “Free Jazz IV – Geomancers” @ NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore
Antenna Space is pleased to announce that the artist Liu Chuang will participate in the exhibition Free Jazz IV – Geomancers at NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore. The exhibition will open on January 14, 2022 and last until January 23, 2022.
From its first iteration in 2013, Free Jazz has pushed boundaries and expanded upon pressing concerns of our times. Free Jazz IV. Geomancers continues this approach, featuring artworks ranging from virtual reality to video, performance, and sound as an exercise in planetary awareness. The exhibition presents significant artistic practices from across the globe that are deeply invested in creating an environmental consciousness and that share an understanding of the world as a vulnerable, yet resilient, mesh of coexistences, correlations, and co-creations. As with geomancy, these artworks can help us to read the signs that our planet is trying to send us and that they can inspire a stronger commitment to create a sustainable future for life on Earth.
Alongside scientists, environmental activists, enlightened policy makers and civil society members, contemporary artists are increasingly concerned with future prospects of ecological collapse and planetary survival. They address these issues through the language of art, creating images, sounds, narratives, and experiences that allow us to establish affective and cognitive connections with the environment and partake in the planetary intelligence of the Earth. Stemming from NTU CCA Singapore’s ongoing engagement with the overarching subject of Climates.Habitats. Environments., Free Jazz IV. Geomancers brings together a selection of creative practitioners who are distinctly alert to these urgencies.
Participating Artists: Martha Atienza, Ursula Biemann, Carolina Caycedo & David de Rozas, Chu Hao Pei , Liu Chuang, Pedro Neves Marques, Katie Paterson, Rice Brewing Sisters Club, Daniel Steegmann Mangrané, Jana Winderen, Zarina Muhammad & Zachary Chan, and Robert Zhao Renhui.
