Dance of a Humble Atheist is a multidisciplinary installation by Toh Hun Ping, a visual artist known for the use of his self-invented techniques of bleaching, scratching and recycling filmstrips in his video work.
Toh’s film is created through painstaking frame-by-frame animation, featuring hundreds of hand-made ceramic tiles specifically handmade by the artist himself and used to animate the video, which serves as a creative expression of ideas relating to death, faith, after-life, nature and consciousness.
The programme will engage audiences on all levels through live performances, an experimental film-making workshop, exploratory ceramic-making sessions and panel discussions on Singapore experimental film.
