The Third Script 2.0: Duo Exhibit of Boo Junfeng and Linda Lai
Why We Recommend it
The exhibition features works by Singaporean filmmaker Boo Junfeng and Hong Kong artist Linda C.H. Lai, exploring diverging ways to deconstruct a narrative.
Both Hong Kong and Singapore, as young post-colonial city-states, are actively working to secure historical identities through a linear historical narrative. The Third Script 2.0 presents two alternatives to this linear construction. By experimenting with the construction and use of micro-narratives, this exhibition reflects on how our identity and recollection of the past are formed.
Boo and Lai, a filmmaker and a videographer/artist respectively, question their own authorship in their work by engaging with time-based media, rendering their practices transparent to their viewers. In doing so, they demonstrate the instability of our individual memories and the impossibility of formulating a collective history.
