About Wu Wei Performance Art

Wu Wei Performance Art from 2018

Wu Wei Performance Art Festival

The Wuwei Performance Series, inspired by Laozi’s teachings of “non-action”, is a performance art event that is thought to be necessary in Singapore as the form is not as active as it once was. As the saying goes, “无为而无不为” (no action will come in necessary action). So this is the right time to be active.

This series of performances will take place in Your MOTHER Gallery.

The Wuwei Performance Series is a periodical performance art event that is held in Singapore. This is the 8th edition of the series

I think it was sometime around 1985 that I realised my love for the retrovirus. I found myself consumed by their terrible beauty, their extraordinary pragmatism, unblinking cold cruelty and absolute devotion to efficient replication at the expense of others. HIV subsequently stole away two of my lovers. So, in retrospect, there was always a feeling of this third body in the bed. Their name was Deathwish. Bio: Ray Langenbach creates conceptual performances, convenes gatherings, writes on cultural theory, performance and queer culture. He currently serves as Professor of Creative Arts, Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman, Kuala Lumpur. The Wuwei Performance Series is a periodical performance art event that is held in Singapore. This is the 8th edition of the series, which has been uploaded online due to the ongoing lockdowns and restrictions.
