Yeo Shih Yun[Singapore]
Yeo Shih Yun is known to reinterpret the very act of ink painting with striking results. Her experimentations of fusing the traditional form with contemporary mediums like new media or performance art has garnered much acclaim, including a commission by the Singapore Art Museum, winning the Sovereign Asian Art Prize People's Choice Award in 2012 and being awarded a Certificate of Distinction and Highly Commended Entry at the UOB Painting of the Year Competition in 2007.
During her residency at Youkobo, Shih Yun will be exploring the unusual means of art making using toy robots. She will be employing these little "machines" that inform the creative process by replacing the personal touch or signature stroke with a mechanical means. The artist will find a unique mark through her particular process and her selection and editing further personalizes the work, making a collaboration between "machine"(toy robot) and "man"(artist).
