Installation artist Angela Chong creates fictional realities in her installations. Using light projections with found objects, presenting absence in dark enclosures, she entices her audience to question the emotional attachments between the object and its owner, in the context of personal history and site-specific darkness. She is currently investigating intents of darkness and notions of light as image. Her focus is on news-specific media that exemplify our understanding of information and ‘truths’ on the subject of conflict, examining the hierarchy relationship between image and text.

She’s had several artist residencies in Iceland, Japan and Czech Republic and has participated in international light festivals in Singapore, Australia, the Netherlands, Israel, Sweden, China and Denmark; and local exhibitions such as Future Proof at 8Q, Singapore Art Museum, and Singapore Eye at ArtScience Museum. She participated in The Story of Space Festival in Goa, India, and MeshMInds 1.0: ArtxTechforGood in ArtScience Museum. As the winner of Chan-Davies Art Prize 2017, she recently had a solo show, else, at Chan-Hori Contemporary.
