Kicking off the new year with an exciting solo presentation during the 2024 edition of Singapore Art Week by leading Singapore-based artist Heman Chong, STPI – Creative Workshop & Gallery is proud to present Meditations on Shadow Libraries, a multi-disciplinary exhibition running from 17 January – 10 March 2024, curated by Brian Kuan Wood, editor and co-founder of e-flux journal and co-curator of the recent Taipei Biennial 2023.

Publishing today is full of contradictions between physical volumes and ephemeral digital products, between actual people and the endless possibilities of knowledge. Heman Chong’s solo exhibition at STPI gathers 9 bodies of work that form a new palimpsest of his multi-faceted practice, with its idiosyncratic movements in, around and between the production of images, performances, situations and writings.
