Dylan Chan

The Performative Body
Click Here to Enter

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.
