NPE Art Residency: Folds of Mind

Ottie and I visited the opening show of two new residents at NPE Art Residency last month. I heard about this art residency sometime in 2015 and since then have always been fascinated by how Daryl Goh manages to manoeuvre his extensive network in order to support the local arts scene through such initiatives… of course it being a free three-month residency, vacancies are only available from 2019 onwards last I heard.

This time, it looks like Daryl brought this idea to another level by opening up a gallery to show for these residencies, and I was happy to be invited to its first gallery opening. I’m very excited to see what else NPE Art Residency will have in store in the future!

Folds of Mind, the exhibition by Artists in Residencey Hélène Le Chatelier and Deusa Blümke, tackles the topics of time, memory, the unseen, and the unspeakable:
