Commissioned by NAC for the Singapore Pavilion at Biennale Arte 2022 in Venice, Pulp III: A Short Biography of the Banished Book by Shubigi Rao returns to Singapore.
This presentation marks the midpoint of Shubigi Rao’s ongoing ten-year project ‘Pulp’, which explores the history of book destruction and its impact on the futures of knowledge. Set in the historic cities of print of Venice and Singapore, her film, ‘Talking Leaves’, explores the tales of those at the frontlines of saving books and libraries, by ways of personal confidences and poetic reflections, documentary and mytho-poetic languages. Her book, ‘Pulp III: An Intimate Inventory of the Banished Book’, chronicles her long-term artistic research process and conceptual reframing of the book and the library.
Multiple screenings, together with the exhibition of the book, will take place at ArtScience Museum.
Venue: ArtScience Museum, Level 4
When: 6 - 24 Jan 2022, 10am - 7pm
