TIFFANY SINGH's "The Pink Period" has opened at Bangkok 1899 and is on view till November 10, 2019.
Singh’s multi-disciplinary approach centers around arts, education and well-being. Her three-month residency elevates Bangkok 1899 as an immersive Social Practice hub, exemplifying a new contemporary art paradigm to enable women artists, who are also mothers, to live and work in a supportive residency environment.
The content explores the challenges faced by respected women artists, paired with research and development on traditional practice. These factors combine to create works that speak from the traditional to the contemporary within a fine art context.
This new suite of work explores the narrative of Women’s Liberation through objects of the domestic. These collaborations map out factors that affect women's participation in various artistic disciplines. The relationships provide a narrative around the history, identity and technical skills related to producing “women’s” work. Through performative aspects and subtle gestures, the exhibition provides an opportunity to learn about, and to address issues that affect women artists.
During her three-month residency, Singh transformed this space into an immersive Social Practice Hub. Looking after her two young children while simultaneously building this exhibition, she exemplifies a new contemporary art paradigm to enable women artists, who are also mothers, to live and work in a supportive residency environment.
