INSTORE: Ming Wong 4A
Ming Wong is a Singaporean artist who currently lives and works in Berlin. Wong’s artistic practice is inspired by world cinema and is characterised by the appropriation and re-enactment of key scenes from classic foreign language films. His aesthetic and conceptual re-interpretations of well-known films are informed by his interest in themes relating to gender and the shared experiences of immigrant communities. Often deliberately miscasting himself in the lead role in his films, Wong’s work is autobiographical in the sense that he incorporates and reflects on his own personal experiences of alienation and dislocation in a global context.
Ming Wong’s selected solo exhibitions include I Should be Like You, Carlier/Gebauer, Berlin, 2012; Persona Performa, Performa 11, Museum of the Moving Image, New York, 2011; and Ming Wong: Life of Imitation, Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo, 2011. He has participated in numerous group exhibitions and biennales, most notably the Liverpool Biennale, 2012; Open House: 2011 Singapore Biennale, 2011; and the Gwangju Biennale, 2010. Wong has been the recipient of a number of awards and residencies including a Special Mention at the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009; a one-year residency at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien,
Berlin, 2007-8; the Pearson Creative Research Fellowship at the British Library, London, 2003-5.
