FOREST FANTASIES and OTHER FORESTIC AFFAIRS
Artist in residence at L'Observatoire, Singapore, 2019.
The studio was converted into a “Faculty of Forest Fantasies and other Forestic Affairs”, and the nearby, partly forested area, became a place for wonder, imagination, and engagement, ‘a landscape of possibilities’.
SELECTED PROJECTS FROM THE RESIDENCY:
Take Time to Care is a collaborative project in the village of Chandelao, Rajasthan, India where we are an international group of women working together with women from the village on issues of social entrepreneurship, women empowerment, and conservation.
Rajasthan is known for its traditional hand block printing practices that connects humans with the local environment through storytelling and the process of using mud and natural dyes.
The project started in 2017 and is on-going.
MacRitchie Me: Turning to Be Wilder(ed),
a project that through research and direct engagement with MacRitchie Nature Reserve in Singapore, aimed to go into the dark and unknown wilderness beyond categories of self, nature and art.
