Ang Song Nian
ANG Song Nian (b. 1983, Singapore) works with found materials and traces of human behaviours made visible within landscapes through photographic documentations and installation. Intrigued by the narration of thoughts and ideologies through visuals, he has always favoured a microscopic approach to concepts and narration. His recent exhibitions include Unearthed at the Singapore Art Museum and Engaging Perspectives at the Centre for Contemporary Art (Singapore). He has exhibited in the Photo Espana Festival (Spain), Gallery Jinsun (Seoul, South Korea), Hanmi Gallery (London) and the Institut d’Estudis Ilerdencs (Lleida, Spain).
Song Nian received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Photography from Camberwell College of Arts and the London College of Communication respectively. His works questions the relationship of human interventions and invasions on landscapes, examining the bits and pieces of the human psyche that are easily overlooked and discarded as irrelevant in the context of society’s measure of success and progress.
