(un)it: HD85828 | in.ViSiBLE

A friend of the salon, Ming Poon, will present his final performance stemmed from the 2 year artist research programme with The Substation this April ---

(un)it: HD85828* is a five-part project that spans from 2011-2013. It is a performance project that attempts to look at People Living with HIV (PLHIV) in Singapore and their collective anonymity.

in.ViSiBLE is the final performance in this series. The challenge is to create a performance in which PLHIV can appear in person to share their stories. It is developed using materials from interviews with PLHIV, and evolves out of four performances that were presented earlier at The Substation.

What does their collective anonymity tell us?
How does their anonymity work?
How do we see someone who remains anonymous?
What do they look like?
What are their stories?

* HD85828 is said to be the faintest star observable from Earth, by the naked eye in the darkest conditions. Under normal circumstances, it is undetectable by our eyes. In this project, this star is a metaphor for PLHIV in Singapore who similarly escape our field of vision.
