The Collaborations

Jennifer Ng believes that materials / ‘things’ are essential bridges between people and spaces. In her works, she often engages the processes of weaving, casting and assembling to articulate the transitory actions and conditions of accumulation, formation and disintegration. Likewise, the approaches and methods employed are purposeful and instrumental in promoting dialogue and negotiation between people and spaces. With these considerations, she recreates and re-stories. Jennifer received her formal art training in Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts . She also holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the National Institute of Education at the Nanyang Technological University. She is currently pursuing a part-time Masters degree in Art Education and teaches full-time in a local junior college.

Mindy Tan’s photography examines the human condition. Her interest lies in getting to the core of the human spirit, specifically the lives of people living within the perils of big cities in South-East Asia. Her background in journalism was honed from her years as a newspaper reporter at the Singapore Press Holdings, covering issues on foreign labour in Singapore, and youth & community issues. She is disconcerted by a South East Asia transforming its traditions for a modernity that has left more people on the lower side of equal and wishes the world can slow down.

Ling Yang Chang has been involved in many aspects of art-making over the last twenty years: artistic creations, group and solo exhibitions, workshops, public lectures and art teaching. As a graduate in Chinese studies, Yang Chang finds a natural affinity for Chinese brush painting, with its close attention to beauty of lines, poetical resonance and philosophical depth. His work is characterized by a delicate balance of Chinese and Western influences. Even in the free rein of Western Abstract expression, the fine lines and tonal qualities of Chinese painting are never absent.
