This event has ended.

Ming Wong builds layers of cinematic language, social structures, identity and introspection through his re-telling of world cinema and popular culture in his videos, installations and performances. With imperfect translations and reenactments, he probes how culture, gender and identity are constructed, reproduced and circulated, as well as how these acts feed into the politics of representation. His new work, produced this summer in Tokyo, references the Nikkatsu Roman Porno known for its erotic storytelling and sensational content. In this work, Wong performs as a “fake daughter” entering the films, and intends to queer the sexual hegemony of the pornographic film genre, in which the male-centered perspective—the depiction toward the apex of the phallus—is constantly being questioned and deviated.
