That artist, who represented Singapore at the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009, and has been celebrated globally for his video and performance works, came to Hong Kong this winter with a residency from Spring Workshop. His mission: To study where Cantonese Opera, one of the world's oldest living art forms, intersects with the future and, more specifically, with Chinese sci fi novels." Read now.
