I am originally from Singapore but am currently in Melbourne, Australia, where I am a doctoral candidate in Art History at the University of Melbourne. I work on art in contemporary Singapore, predominantly on the 1990s. My early training was in two dimensional art forms, primarily painting and photography. For my PhD, I am writing about performance and installation art.
I am interested in art histories, performance art forms in the Asian context, Southeast Asian art histories and artistic migration, particularly in relation to Singapore but more generally in the worlding of Southeast Asia or the maritime.
Increasingly, I have found myself within the digital space or what some people call digital humanities.
Generally, I like to keep to myself but I am starting to realise that the research basement does not exist in Southeast Asia. So this is where I put my activity in one place.
