Biography



Chong Lii’s work aims to explore the possibility of merging or levelling disparate spaces, objects, people, and images. Permeable frames of history and ontology are set against the spectacle of fiction, re-articulating the sociopolitical tensions from which these elements arise.

︎ Chong Lii and Urich Lau exploring different possibilities of presentation.

In late March, Chong Lii came over to our space to test out possible modes of display and consider what clips to juxtapose in his presentation. To better see the clips and stimulate the experience of a viewing, we left the space dim safe for the red lights meant for the plants. The illumination from the projections against the wash of light felt like a simulation in itself — the trial before the game opens, a pre-beginning and an indication of things to come.
