House Party: Rendezvous - A dialogue between image makers and wordsmiths
Lavender Chang x You Jin
You Jin, writer
Tham Yew Chin whose pen name is You Jin, has published close to 180 short stories, essays and travelogues in her literary career spanning 40 years. In 2009 she received the Cultural Medallion Award for her contributions to Chinese literary arts in Singapore.
Liana Yang x O Thiam Chin
Liana Yang, visual artist
Liana Yang is rarely motivated by direct beauty, but rather by the aesthetics of social and sociological interactions. She is drawn to the trivialities and oddities that we encounter in our daily experiences. This includes the enigmatic and unseen aspects of relationships, as well as explorations of memory and associations in our contemporary culture.
O Thiam Chin, writer
O Thiam Chin is the author of five collections of short fiction: Free-Falling Man, Never Been Better, Under The Sun, The Rest Of Your Life and Everything That Comes With It, and Love, Or Something Like Love. O was an honorary fellow of the Iowa International Writing Program in 2010, a recipient of the National Arts Council’s Young Artist Award in 2012, and has been shortlisted for the 2014 Singapore Literature Prize.
The House Party
The House Party is an annual celebration organised by The Arts House where artists, writers and musicians come together to share with us stories that inspire their being and their work. This year, we highlight the various literary expressions across artistic genres through an eclectic range of events by Singapore artists. From a poetic musical dialogue curated by Young Artist Award winner Marc Nair, a showcase of Asian stories by master storyteller Kamini Ramachandran, a photo exhibition by local photographers Liana Yang and Lavender Chang, to jazz and chamber music performances curated by Aya Sekine and violinist Loh Jun Hong respectively. Come join us to celebrate our Singapore artists.
