People who have saved this event:



A million blacked out business cards covering the floor set the scene for this exhibition which explores ideas of exchange, and the role of rules and regulations in determining codes of behaviour. Every Wednesday, a performance will occur in the main space where participants are taught to recite a short story which is transmitted by word of mouth.

Second-hand copies of novels are included in the gift shop and made available for sale, while sixty paintings in the gallery weave together a list of novels, abstractions and spam e-mails.

Two writers are in residence throughout the exhibition in the first floor galleries, quietly working on their own thoughts.

Heman Chong is an artist and a writer whose work is located at the intersection between image, performance, situations and writing. His work continuously interrogates the many functions of the production of narratives in our everyday lives.
