ABOUT THIS EVENT

Acclaimed visual artist Brian Gothong Tan kicks off his exciting new journey helming an artistic atelier at T:>Works with The Swimming-Pool Library.

Reflecting an unconventional rite of passage where society’s labels of gender and sexuality may not necessarily apply, The Swimming Pool Library is an immersive, multi-sensorial production that looks at the relevance of society’s definitions of masculinity, and explores how feminine traits such as tenderness, kindness and vulnerability can also be part of masculine identity.

The exhibition is split into various chapters that mark milestones in a rite of passage, reflected through Tan’s intimate, surreal lens. Paper sketches, paintings, 3D printed sculptures, 3D film photography and DIY books evoke memories of a boy trying to make sense of who he is, and where life will take him. Complementing this is a live performance specially choreographed for the camera and performed in-situ at 72-13, while simultaneously live-cast over the internet.
