Kent Chan is an artist, filmmaker and curator based in Singapore. His practice revolves around our encounters with art, fiction and cinema that explore the links between aesthetic experience and knowledge production. He holds particular interest in the tropical imagination, and the relationship between moving images and the modern city. The works and practices of others often form the locus of his works, which examines the ambiguity that lies at the interstices of art (making) and daily life. His works have taken the form of film, text, conversations and exhibitions.
Kent will be an artist-in-residence at the Jan Van Eyck Academie from 2019 to 2020.
