Superposition(s) @ ICAS


The artwork is at its most contemporary within the studio, always a moment too late after.

I will be taking part in Superposition(s), a curatorial project of overlapping encounters: between curators and artists, designers and image-makers; between practitioners and audience; between the imagined publics of curators and artists. It aims to chart the processual relationships between these encounters, tracing the spaces between collaboration and resistance. For the duration of the exhibition, artists share and convert the space of the exhibition into their own studio spaces. The audience is encouraged to observe and engage with the artists, experiencing not the artworks themselves but rather the different processes of each artist’s practice. At the same time, curators and writers contribute texts as a response to the artists and their process of developing a work, and to also frame the way audience members encounter the entire space of the exhibition.

Sat 22nd March – Sun 20th April 2014 @ Earl Lu Gallery, LASALLE

Sãgara EP (Emerging Species)

My first EP will finally be released early Feb ’14 on Emerging Species. We will be doing a limited press of 100 hand-detailed vinyl records, followed by a digital release. If you’d like to pre-order a copy, please visit:

“Drifting across the shimmering, pebble-clad riverbanks of the Thames, to the spicy shores of South-East Asia, the listener sets sail in a long-tail, deep into uncharted waters where tentacles flail seductively amidst volatile currents and crushing waves.”

Solo / Duet @ NUS Arts Festival 2013

I composed a piece of music for Unform, a collaborative work by T.H.E Dance Company, which is one of three pieces in Solo / Duet, featuring in NUS Arts Festival on 9th and 10th March 2013. Artistic director Kuik Swee Boon worked closely with dance-artists Sherry Tay, Lee Mun Wai and Jessica Christina to choreograph a work that questioned the intention behind one’s personal artistic journey and dissolve the boundary between performer and audience.
