The Invisibility Project

invisible3

Over the last few months, I commissioned 12 artists: 6 visual, 6 poets, to respond to the theme of Invisible identities. I wanted to curate a collaborative project where emerging visual artists could respond to poets’ work and where it could all be exhibited together. As part of TAH/NUS writing residency, residents are supported in curating public events of their own creation and are given a budget to play with, which meant that all the artists involved received a fee for their commission. The work produced was really beautiful and it was fun to have everyone together in the same space, sharing and discussing about the work. The exhibition runs in the foyer of The Arts House until the end of this year.
