Heman Chong selected for 20th Sydney Biennale

08th February 2016

18 MARCH–5 JUNE 2016

The 20th Biennale of Sydney, inspired by a quote from leading science fiction author William Gibson, is titled The future is already here — it’s just not evenly distributed. This edition of the Biennale will be presented at seven main venues conceived as ‘embassies of thought’.

Of the embassies, the Embassy of Stanislaw Lem presents a project by Heman Chong within a small bookshop. Chong’s work will develop out of a process of accumulation; gathering together second-hand copies of Polish science fiction author Stanislaw Lem’s books (in both English and Polish), which will be available for visitors to both peruse and purchase.
