Part\wh is not theatre, not a game, but an experiential construct which shifts and re-imagines the boundaries between the art, theatre, and the internet. The participant’s last choice drives each construct. The work asks how each choice that we make, whether conscious or otherwise, affects us and others around us.

contrary wagon breaks the boundaries of the art mediums we are familiar with, in an experiment to create new forms of making. Because time and space is undefined, and unconstrained in a post-Covid world where the digital can be experienced anywhere, and everywhere.

This programme is part of "we are not going back, we are coming around", The Substation's programme for Proposals for Novel Ways of Being.

contrary wagon

At an intersection of two lines of vision—one gazing up into the blinding sunshine and the other gaze is a nosedive from the skies into the unknown, this is where the contrary wagon was built. However, the contrary wagon is also when these visions enjoy their incongruity. When does this space no longer exist? Where does this point exactly meet? Until they decide to continue their gaze, these answers will remain unanswered.

contrary wagon is a collective consisting of Henrik Cheng and Tan Weiying.

About we are not going back, we are coming around

The pandemic reveals a broken world. As communities adapt to a new reality, can art heal what is broken, strengthen connections with ourselves, one another and the world and inspire new possibilities for the future? we are not going back, we are coming around is a series of artistic endeavours which explores the role of the arts in a world that is rushing to repair itself and postures a new direction our society could move towards in the wake of this pandemic. Presenting projects by nine artists and collectives of various disciplines, this series centres around three lines of inquiry that address broader questions of rebuilding in a pandemic-stricken world.

About Proposals for Novel Ways of Being

The Substation is proud to be one of the 12 local art institutions, independent art spaces and collectives coming together for Proposals for Novel Ways of Being. Led by National Gallery Singapore and Singapore Art Museum, Proposals for Novel Ways of Being is an unprecedented collective response by the visual arts community to present a series of exhibitions and programmes, both physical and online. Its title references an earlier name of the virus, i.e. '2019 Novel Coronavirus', which serves as a reminder that we need new ways of being as we grapple with a new reality brought about by this pandemic.
