About Ivan Cheng
Ivan Cheng (1991, Sydney) produces video, objects, paintings and publications as anchors for the staging of complex and precarious spectacles. His background as a performer and musician form the basis for using performance as a critical medium. His work has recently been presented at Maxxi (Rome), CNAC Magasin (Grenoble), Centrale Fies (Dro), Édouard Montassut (Paris). Confidences/Majority, the latest in a series of vampire books, was published by After 8 Books in 2022. He has initiated the project space bologna.cc in Amsterdam since 2017.
About Feudal Flaw
Departing from recent performances which used their site as the basis for content, Ivan Cheng will perform a theatrical text from the forthcoming third book in his Confidences series of vampire novels. Feudal Flaw is written to be staged in a spiegeltent operated by a group of oracles - those who can divine the future, but in formulation know the risk of misinterpretation.
