Ponti discussion

Sharlene Teo and Chip Tsao discussing Ponti.



Sharlene Teo. Her talk was great. She talked about Singapore, read from her book. Story, sentence structure, insight, viewpoints and an agenda that is more lightbulb than bulldozer.

Her book features a fictitious movie series about a Malay monster; a beautiful female who traps and mutilates men. I have yet to read it, but Ian McEwan calls it 'remarkable'. (Mental note to self: dig up the notes on Singapore-based artworks and texts that involve fictitious persons, books or organizations. Shubigi Rao, Michael Lee, Gilles Massot, Robert Zhou, Isabel Desjeux)

An interview with Sharlene in the Guardian.
