Swallowtail is born from a collaboration with Singaporean film-maker Liao Jie Kai, a piece made as part of a filmic exploration The Drawing Room & Episodes from Art Studio, inspired by the text, characters and narratives from Yeng Pway Ngon’s novel, Art Studio. The film features artist Yanyun Chen in a studio space, drawing a portrait from life over the span of 6 weeks. This work was exhibited alongside Liao Jie Kai’s film at the group exhibition “Spirit of Place” at the Jendela Visual Art Space, Esplanade, Singapore.
