INSTINC artist-in-residence May/June 2013
“It is wonderful that INSTINC is facilitating this collaborative arts project between local Singaporean and international artists. The project will give participants the opportunity to share ideas, creative processes and knowledge of the arts from their own corner of the world. It will be an invaluable and enriching experience for everyone that takes part.
“I felt privileged to be invited to take part in such an important milestone in INSTINC’s history and to be selected from the many artists who have been involved over the last 10 years. I haven’t worked collaboratively with another artist before so it will be a fantastic new experience for me.”
