Expanded cinema isn’t a movie at all: like life it’s a process of becoming, man’s ongoing historical drive to manifest his consciousness outside of his mind, in front of his eyes.
– Gene Youngblood, Expanded Cinema (1970)

An exploration of the entanglements between reality, representation, and discourse, facilitated by the moving image, ON/OFF/SCREEN situates the screen, the ubiquitous and contemporary mode of communication and transmission, as both a site of inquiry and departure.

Contemplating the porosity and possibilities of an expanded cinematic practice in contemporary image-making, this exhibitions features works from artists whose inter-disciplinary practices blur the formal and conceptual boundaries between performance, new media, and the moving image.

The eight featured artists are Piyarat Piyapongwiwat, Xi Jie Ng, Lynette Quek, ila, Ashley Hi, Huijun Lu, Farizi Noorfauzi, and Jevon Chandra.

ON/OFF/SCREEN is curated by the Moving Picture Experiment Group (MPEG), an experimental art and curatorial collective comprising Alfonse Chiu, Adar Ng, and Dave Lim.
