The National Arts Council (NAC) has announced that two members will be added to Artist Zai Kuning’s artistic production team behind the Singapore Pavilion at the 57th edition of the Venice Biennale.
The announcement is made after the controversial withdrawal of curator June Yap and project manager Neo Kim Seng from the initial team in December due to differences in operational approaches within the team.
The four members are Tamares Goh, former head of The Esplanade’s visual arts team and artists Lin Shiyun.
Zai will be representing a multi-disciplinary artwork entitled Dapunta Hyang: Transmission Of Knowledge, which comprises a 17 metre-long ship made of rattan, beeswax and string as the exhibition’s centre piece.
The piece will be exhibited at the Singapore Pavilion located at the Arsenale from May 13 to Nov 26.
