DIY

 

DIY 14 is an opportunity for artists working in Live Art to conceive and run unusual research, training and professional development projects for themselves and other artists.

"One of the most valuable professional developments of my artistic practice so far."
– FK Alexander, DIY lead artist, 2016

DIY is all about creating spaces to explore new ideas and test new methodologies. We want to hear from you if have an idea for an exciting, innovative and idiosyncratic Live Art professional development project that offers something different and is geared to the eclectic and often unusual needs of artists whose practices are grounded in challenging and unconventional approaches, forms and concepts.

Jack Tan: Law In The Limelight

This year, Artsadmin is supporting Jack Tan's DIY, Law In The Limelight. This set of monthly discussion workshops explores the relationship between performance and law. Using theatre as a starting point and a framework, we will explore how an artist’s perspective can inform legal practice and provide insight into the aesthetic dimensions of law and power. The group will consider the visuality, vocality, performativity and spectatorship of justice through co-created and open-ended sessions with input from guest speakers. Facilitated by Jack Tan, the sessions aim to create mutual resources and connections that will support participants’ work as artists and/or lawyers.

Jack trained as a lawyer and worked in civil rights NGOs before becoming an artist. Jack makes work that explores the connection between the social, the legal and art, and he is interested in how power is aesthetically produced through law. Recent projects include Voices from the Courts (2016) a Singapore Biennale presentation and residency at the State and Family Justice Courts of Singapore exploring legal vocality; Karaoke Court (2014-ongoing) a legally-binding karaoke dispute resolution process; Law’s Imagination (2016) a curatorial residency on legal aesthetics at arebyte; his solo exhibition How to do things with rules (2015) at the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore; A kiss is just a kiss (2014), a performance exploring kissing and reconciliation at the Institute of International Visual Arts (Iniva).
