Kent Chan is an artist, curator and filmmaker based in the Netherlands and Singapore. His practice revolves around our encounters with art, fiction and cinema that form a triumvirate of practices porous in form, content and context. He holds particular interest in the tropical imagination, the past and future relationships between heat and art, and contestations to the legacies of modernity as the epistemology par excellence. The works and practices of others often form the locus of his works, which have taken the form of film, text, conversations and exhibitions.
He is a former resident of Jan van Eyck Academie (2019/20), NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore (2017/18) and Rupert’s Residency Program (2015). He has held solo presentations at Bonnefanten Museum, National University Singapore Museum and SCCA-Ljubljana, Centre for Contemporary Arts, Slovenia. His works has been exhibited in venues including Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam, EYE Film Museum, Institute of Contemporary Arts, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Busan Biennale, Drodesera Festival of Performing Arts and National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts.
