Lam Pok Yin Jeff (b.1988) and Chong Ng (b.1987) are artists living in Shanghai and Singapore, who work with sculptural objects, installations and performances, which deal with the ontological nature of the medium.
Their practice is process-oriented, as they are interested in how narratives and meanings are generated in the making of the image. In their works, the photographic apparatus, the act and process of photographing, as well as the circulation of images are taken apart from within, through the creation of their own photographic devices and image-making methodologies. Obsolete technologies and everyday objects are reinvented, adapted and radicalised, and norms around photography are often taken to the extreme, until they start to fall apart, in order to provide alternative understandings of the medium beyond the picture plane.
