Tremble Tremble Opens at Lasalle, Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore

November 4th 2017, at 03.50pm

As Tremble Tremble nears the end of its presentation in the Irish Pavilion at Venice Biennale, a new chapter in the exhibitions life begins as it transforms the ICA Singapore’s largest gallery.

This new instalment of Tremble Tremble features new elements developed during Jones residency at LASALLE earlier this year. During her time in Singapore Jones surveyed LASALLE’s collection of the art, implements and archives of the College’s founder, Irish Catholic priest, educator and artist Brother Joseph McNally. For this instalment of Tremble Tremble, she includes a selection of hand tools used and refashioned by Brother McNally in his studio. Other new elements include a steel ‘burning table’ that holds the burnt remains of copies of an 1821 Irish Witchcraft Repeal Bill to repeal an Act against witchcraft and sorcery made during the Elizabethan era.

Tremble Tremble opened in Singapore on 3 November 2017 and runs until 28 January 2018. Find out more about Tremble Tremble in Singapore here.

Tremble Tremble will continue its tour to Talbot Rice Gallery in Edinburgh and then here in the summer of 2018.
