Ming Wong

Ming Wong works with cinema and popular culture to consider how one´s identity is constructed, reproduced and circulated. Through imperfect translations and reenactments of classic world cinema in which the artist plays all of the characters, Wong’s videos, photographs, installations, and performances uncover the slippages that haunt ideas of “authenticity” and “originality”.

Ming Wong (b.1971) lives and works in Berlin. Wong represented Singapore at the 53rd Venice Biennale in 2009 with the solo presentation Life of Imitation, which was awarded a special mention. He has had solo exhibitions at leading institutions worldwide, including Ullens Centre for Contemporary Ar, Beijing; Shiseido Gallery, Tokyo; Singapore Art Museum; and Neuer Berliner Kunstverein. Wong has been included in numerous international biennials, including the Venice Biennale; Performa, New York; Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Brisbane; Sydney Biennial; Shanghai Biennale; Lyon Biennale; and the Liverpool Biennial.
