Ming Wong: Wayang Spaceship

Singapore Art Museum (SAM) presents the new, site-specific commissioned work by Singaporean artist Ming Wong.

Alongside the industrial, technological and ecological crises that have taken place throughout time, “A Wayang Spaceship” also stands witness to our place in the cosmos. During the day, the “Wayang Spaceship” is seemingly dormant, its reflective surfaces mirroring the bustling traffic around the container seaport. Its own inactivity is interrupted by the occasional stray radio transmission relayed from another dimension. At dusk, the “Wayang Spaceship” reclaims its former role as a travelling Chinese theatre, illuminating the past, present and future with an operatic symphony of light, sound and image, as though it is livestreamed from the memory of a scholar-warrior, a time travelling consciousness who moves freely between the past, present, and future. Each day, after the Singapore Art Museum closes, the “Wayang Spaceship” activates with light, sound and film, allowing the public to commune with this solitary figure of Chinese opera. The “Wayang Spaceship” will evolve over a two-year period featuring a range of performances and access programmes.
