A SPATIAL EXPERIMENT
A project by Henry Tan
May 30 – June 30 2013
Curated by Brian Curtin
Bangkok, Thailand – H Project Space is very pleased to announce a special project by the artist and performer Henry Tan. Engaging with recent trends and critical debate in participatory art or social practice, Henry has invited a variety of designers, writers, musicians and other practitioners to create works in the elegant but demanding environment of H Project Space.
A Spatial Experiment faces questions of the universal significance of artistic practices. Henry is interested in the erosion of individual beliefs and understandings in regard to contemporary technologies of communication more generally. How can or do individuals make sense of artistic practices in an era of endlessly circulated memes and ever-shifting boundaries and cultural contexts?
Simultaneously a director and facilitator, Henry highlights tensions between claims for the directed or controlled and the general or dissipated. A Spatial Experiment most notably explores such tensions in a physical rather than virtual environment.
