Through commissioned texts by writers and an index of 35 selected projects of the artist in alphabetical order by title with photographic illustrations and brief descriptions, The Part In The Story Where We Lost Count Of The Days is an artist book and monograph that reflects on the artistic practice of Singaporean artist Heman Chong.

'Acting as both maker of objects and facilitator of situations, Chong’s work sits at the intersection of multiple genres: visual art, performance, writing, installation and science fiction. This publication was conceived, in part, as a way to engage and unravel these categories and as well as to highlight their overlapping and circuitous nature.' - from the editor's note by Pauline J. Yao

Includes biographies of the artist and contributors.

Performance Art

The selected publications on this page present the varied ways artists, curators, and researchers experiment with performance. For some, performance is a way to defy the commodification of art, a physical intervention into dominant narratives, or an enactment that eludes state control. Performance may be a protest that takes place in the theatre, on the streets, in a café, or in a private setting. For others, it is experimentation with the form: a transformation, appropriation, or expansion of dance, theatre, and film.
