Artist Beatrice Glow Open Studio

Commencing the second cycle of the Artist-in-Residence Programme at Yale-NUS College, artist Beatrice Glow is in Singapore from January-May 2021. Glow is working in service of public history to create a more socially and environmentally just future. She often co-labours with scholars, scientists and community stakeholders to assemble surviving fragments and question colonialist histories. For this residency, she is pursuing a research-creation project that delves into Chinese, Singaporean, and the greater Southeast Asian visual and olfactory culture in relationship to trade histories that continue to impact our present and environmental futures. This multi-sensorial research of experiencing sites, scents and cultural objects along the spice and incense route will lead to multidisciplinary works that ​activate plant histories to and spur relational thinking that challenges the perceptions that humans are separate from nature. Her studio at Gillman Barracks is part of a collaboration between Yale-NUS College AIR and NTU CCA Singapore residencies. The AIR Programme is made possible with the support of Tan Chin Tuan Foundation through the Tan Chin Tuan Chinese Culture and Civilisation Programme.

What happens in the hours after a city falls asleep, after an apocalypse? Artists working in five timezones around the world explore the cosmic and mundane in the wake of breakdowns and slippages from “normalcy”, centred on a night-time gallery experience at Gillman Barracks.

Central to Yeo’s works are his exaggeratedly female globular forms, bloated on a caricatured sexuality that verges on the comic, grotesque and cute at the same time.

Networked Bodies is an exhibition that seeks to investigate communication and intimacy through the internet. When our bodies are stuck, and our minds yearn for the other, how can we reach beyond the screen and create new sensory experiences? This exhibition will feature digital works, media installations, and works that use social media as a platform.
