A Place with No Sand

Genevieve Ang, curated by Shireen Marican

Solo Exhibition

1 - 10 March 2024, 11am to 7pm

Genevieve Ang presents four newly created works in the exhibition A Place with No Sand, part of a developing project of her practice, and a space she currently shares with Shireen Marican to expand conversation and ideas. Powered by Genevieve’s interest in unveiling invisible structures, architecture and technologies that underpins material culture; and harmonised with Shireen’s curiosity in the relationships within ecological systems to reveal how human communities can do better for the future, this exhibition is a visual study of glass transformation and a deeper exploration into the ecological relationships of materials with the natural world.

About the Artist(s)

Genevieve Ang is an artist and designer interested in investigating our complex relationship with materials and the resulting ecological implications of our interactions. She seeks to engage with the diverse uses of different materials through experimentation and to untangle the intricate processes through research, translating the outputs into sculptures, visual images, and installations that bring together craft, technology, nature, and people. Immersed in both art and design, she was funded by DesignSingapore under the Good Design Research Grant to experiment on how glass waste can be transformed into glazes. Additionally, she has exhibited internationally in art and design showcases such as Art Jakarta, SEA Focus, and EMERGE @FIND, a platform for South-East Asia’s creatives.

Shireen Marican is a cultural manager, systems thinker and educator motivated to advance the engagement of culture with people, institutions and organisations for a just and equitable environment and society. She engages deeply with community and contemporary discourses for projects and research to co-create strategy and practice across diverse stakeholders through her work as a Consultant with Desire Lines and an Adjunct Lecturer with LASALLE College of the Arts. Passionate about weaving intercultural and interdisciplinary perspectives, and building resilience towards global critical and social issues, Shireen has also been awarded the Platform Curatorial Projects Award in 2019 by NTU Centre for Contemporary Arts, an affiliation of the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, and was a recipient of the Teman Warisan (Cultural Heritage Ambassador) award in 2022 by the Malay Heritage Foundation.
