Heman Chong

1 September 2016


In his recent solo exhibition at the South London Gallery, Heman Chong hung paintings of well-known novel covers on the wall, initiated a weekly short-story recital and created an informal residency for fiction writers. This is typical of an artist whose work examines the uses and production of narratives in our everyday lives. Chong’s work, which he describes as ‘located at the intersection between image, performance, situations and writing’, has gained international acclaim, with a major solo exhibition at the Rockbund Art Museum, China, and involvement in group shows at Tate Modern, London, and the New Museum, New York, among many others.
