Wu Jun Han

Wu Jun Han plays and performs in the audio-visual, which he expanded into from a background in video art. He works with an interdisciplinary approach to performance, developed out of themes on the visceral, vernacular and the future. Wu has performed extensively as a live visualist, playing live visuals for music performances, as well as engaging in an experimental music practice based in improvisation, percussion and electronics. He was an artist-in-residence on Pulau Ubin (organised by The Artists Village) in 2012 and was most recently one of the featured artists for the exhibition “Fantasy Islands” at Objectifs.

About Artwork

Closure / Tutup

This audio work responds to the film with its bold title of Mogok, which translates to ‘strike’. In 1957, the year of Mogok’s release, an actual industrial dispute took place between Shaw Brothers and PERSAMA (Persatuan Artiste Malaya, a film workers union). In the film, the studio’s entrance was used as a film location, the site of an imaginary strike by workers in a battery factory. The studio was also the site of a then real dispute where more than 120 employees of Malay Film Productions Ltd. picketed at the gates. Listeners of the sound piece stand before the gates of 8 Jalan Ampas as silent witnesses caught in the dialogue between real and imaginary strikes.

This work is made in collaboration with voice talent Izzad Radzali Shah, and Malay language consultant Siti Fatimah.
