ONG JIA WEI, IVAN
A resident alien on this Earth.
Ivan Ong (b.1994) is a Singaporean artist, who lives and works in Singapore. He loves the emphasis on daily life, in the commute, musing, and the mundane. Thus, he is best known for his ideas about the dealings of the everyday. His photographs have varied in tones, but have always been consistent in the idea of photographing spaces and objects that contains signature traces of households in corridor spaces. Moving forward, he is progressively taking his practice outward to look at interactions and installations within the city.
Through his practice, he hopes to push for the convergence of reality and the imaginary, a paradigm of both he believes can co-exist.
