Singapore Art Week 2017 — Launch: Lee Wen's "Boring Donkey Songs"

  • Grey Projects 6B Kim Tian Road Singapore, 163006 Singapore (map)

Grey Projects is pleased to announce the launch of Boring Donkey Songs, a selection of poems, musings and songs written by Cultural Medallion recipient, Lee Wen over the past two years.

Despite his long practice, this is his first book length collection of his writings. What is also remarkable in this volume is Wen's facility with social media. All of the writings in this collection were first published on Wen's Facebook page.

Like the Chinese artist Ai Wei Wei, online media has become a form of broadcast for his artistic and social commentary. Poignantly, given Wen's deteriorating physical condition, the book also stands as a record of his rage, frustration, and struggle with his illness.
