The Substation presents "SeptFest 2004: Artists & Other Animals"

Category : events

A Visual Art Show, Forum & Fair - free admission for all sessions. Details at the webpage.

In collaboration with focas (Forum on Contemporary Art & Society), this project seeks to initiate what is hoped will be an ongoing dialogue between environmentalists, animal groups, artists, theorists and interested public about the ways in which human-animal relationships are imagined, represented and performed in the region.

Regional Animalities Part I (Visual Art Show) at the The Substation Gallery, 1-5 September 11am - 9pm daily. A five day, video, sound, performance and philosophical exploration into our everyday relationships with meat and the killing of animals for food, by Zai Kuning & Yuen Chee Wai.

Regional Animalities Part II (Visual Art Show) at The Substation Gallery, Blue Room and Garden, 11-26 September 11am - 9pm daily. Official Opening 7pm, 11 September 2004. Artists from Singapore and Malaysia explore various aspects of human-animal relationships. Besides raising awareness about specific issues, they explore ways in which animals provide raw materials for our symbolic order, our dreams and urban imagination - putting pressure on the boundaries between animals and humans.

Humanimal Forum at the The Substation Guinness Theatre, Saturday 11 September: 3 topics/sessions between 10am-12pm, 1pm-3pm and 4pm-6pm. A lively dialogue with over twenty invited scientists, artists, academics, activists, TV & media workers & public personalities; see details here.

Humanimal Fair & Small Animal Adoption Drive at the The Substation Garden, 11 September 3pm-7pm. Hang out in The Substation Garden with animal and conservation organisations to music by Zai Kuning, EMOT, Yee Chang Kang and UBlues.
