This session brings together artists, writers and curators for a discussion on objects and their agency. Excerpts from literary works selected by artist and writer Jason Wee will be shared between participants and the audience in advance, functioning as a medium between participants and the audience. Participants include Jason Wee, Andrea Fam, Bruce Quek, Melissa Tan and Kenneth Tay.

This session is presented in conjunction with the exhibition "When you get closer to the heart, you may find cracks..." | Stories of Wood by the Migrant Ecologies Project held at the NUS Museum.

About Grounded Conversations: In Medias Res
An extension of NUS Museum's Grounded Conversations series, Grounded Conversations: In Medias Res aims to facilitate a thinking around the question of media and the extra-medial from the perspective of artists and their practices.

Presenting a series of distinct projects on how art practitioners have begun to adopt comprehensive paradigms in their fieldwork methods traditionally associated with anthropological and historical research, Grounded Conversations brings together practitioners from the contemporary art work to unravel this 'anthropological turn'.
