For its 10th and final edition, Art Encounters travels to the heart of Little India from 2 December 2022 to 2 January 2023, featuring an experimental audio-visual project by AVC—comprising painter Bridget Tay and musician Nazrin Ramlee—that bridges sound/noise and visual art.
The duo’s approach first examines the relationship and dynamics of painting and sound by distilling each into fundamental elements: process, response, frequencies and application. Presenting two bodies of work, Synapse Intarsia is the melding and reconstruction of these rudiments.

Step into an interactive installation that uses electronic circuits with sensors to create an audio feedback in response to the different light frequencies in the space. As the light changes with a video projection of a painting and your movements, the sensors react to emit unique tonal variations, generating a cacophony of sound that records a unique encounter with the work at one point in time.
Hop over to the adjacent container and witness how the boundaries of painting are blurred further, with bulbous, neon forms spilling out of their canvases and frames, and into the surrounding space. Bring the protuberant works to life, as motion sensors animate it in response to visitors’ movement patterns, provoking new ways of engaging with art.
About the Artists
AVC is a collective that focuses on bridging the disciplines of visual art and sound.
Bridget Tay (b. 1989, Singapore) is an artist, curator and art educator who attained her MFA from Goldsmiths, University of London. Her formal explorations in painting look at the concept of space as a physical entity in relation to an expanded field of painting, while her broader practice plays with clichés and art jargon to comment on Singapore’s art landscape.
Nazrin Ramlee (b. 1986, Singapore), under the moniker Naazsedilix / NZSDLX / SA3A, is a multi-disciplinary musician and designer who expresses his fascination with audio visual cultures and interpretation through sampling contemporary and indigenous forms into new expressions. He co-founded Jaringan Records, a project devoted to pushing electronic sounds through circuitry.
