In his works, Dylan Chan (b. 1997) abstracts instances from everyday life and draws from memories and reminiscences centred around intimacy. Not being limited to just one medium, he explores mark-making and collage in his practice. Threading between fact and fiction, he composes and weaves together images into a textured landscape often telling solitary narratives. In this exploration of the autobiographical, he gains a deeper understanding of self and the influences that govern our perception. He was also the recipient of the Winston Oh (Practice) Award in 2018.
Embrace is a video performance. The work looks at the act of the embrace as an agent of slowness, and the possible tension it creates. Taken out of the context of a greeting, the act does not have a foreseeable end point.
