TALK: Exhibition Tour by Shubigi Rao of "Tremble Tremble", Jesse Jones

  • Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore 1 McNally Street Singapore, 187940 Singapore (map)

Join Shubigi Rao for a tour of 'Tremble Tremble' programmed especially for Singapore Art Week.

Shubigi Rao is a visual artist and writer whose varied interests include constructed histories, the consolidation of authority through language and culture, the control of knowledge generation and access, and resistance against these historical and contemporary oppressions. She is currently working on Pulp: A short biography of the banished book, a ten-year film and book project about library and book destruction, open access, civil disobedience in the history of print, and the writing of these phenomena in the margins.

In 'Tremble Tremble', Irish artist Jesse Jones transforms the ICA Singapore’s largest gallery into a multimedia installation which reimagines feminist history and institutions of law. The exhibition title is inspired by the 1970s Italian ‘Wages for Housework’ campaign, during which women chanted 'Tremate, tremate, le streghe sono tornate! (Tremble, tremble, the witches have returned!)'. In 'Tremble Tremble', Jones introduces the witch as a feminist archetype and disrupter who has the potential to transform reality.

Exhibition curated by ICA Singapore Director Bala Starr for the LASALLE College of the Arts McNally Legacy Project. Commissioned and curated by Tessa Giblin, Director, Talbot Rice Gallery, the University of Edinburgh, for the Pavilion of Ireland at the 57th Venice Biennale, supported by an international partnership with LASALLE.
