Amanda Heng began her practice in the late 1980s, an epochal moment in Singapore art history that saw the beginnings of contemporary art, where she worked in performance, installation and other multi-disciplinary projects. A lecturer and full-time art practitioner, Heng was also awarded the prestigious Cultural Medallion award in 2010.
A Walked Line Can Never Be Erased features documentation of and artistic responses to the events that Amanda Heng presented as part of M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2018: Let’s Walk:
The durational live performance I Walk from the South to the North continued Amanda’s interest in rituals, exchanges and their relationship with live performance in daily life. In the public participatory performance Let’s Walk, participants walked backwards from The Substation to the Merlion Park. Amanda also conducted the Walking Workshops with art and design student-participants who created works in response to the walks.
This exhibition is co-presented with M1 Singapore Fringe Festival 2018: Let’s Walk, with support from Cultural Matching Fund and Arts Fund.
