10 DaughtersOrganised by: Jereh Leung and collaborators
Performed by: Jereh Leung
"You have to help me do chores because I have no daughter," says the artist's mother, the ninth of ten daughters. An interdisciplinary presentation weaving installation, sound, lighting and live performance, 10 Daughters is a journey of liberation, care and self-actualisation vis-à-vis the context of domestic space.
Situated in the Chapel Gallery of Objectifs, the presentation temporarily transforms the site of a former church and an all-girls school into a vessel holding generations of stories passed down to the artist. Contemplative yet playful, 10 Daughters brings together personal narratives, fiction and impressions from the artist's memories of growing up in the 80s and 90s. The work invites you to encounter the artist over two days from morning to night; to recollect, repose and revel in a shared space.
10 Daughters is a programme under O, an interdisciplinary project initiated by artist Jereh Leung. The project aims to explore performance within the spatial context of domesticity, and how it is mediated and influenced by East Asian media culture. Drawing from the artist's childhood experiences and his baby-boomer mother, O is a provocation to ruminate on conceptions of domesticity and womanhood across time and generations.
