Jevon Chandra

(b. 1991)

          I am an artist based in Singapore, and I experiment with sound and spatiality most often. That art has the potential to facilitate in holding a space is important to me.
I am drawn to ideas of enchantment, and my practice is animated by the suspicion that there is always more than I know. In response, I look to create opportunities for curiousity, feeling, and pause to germinate –  a momentary gesturing towards something more somewhere else.

Of relation is an interest in psychogeography, which, in my loose framing and purposing of the concept, is likewise postured towards that not physically present: the psychic content of spaces. It is also concerned with the pathos –  hopes, memories, projections, traumas – embedded in the landscape, right beneath our feet.
