Desiree Tham (b. 1992, Singapore)
>> Solo Exhibition Presented by VADA Visual Arts Development Association x Intersections Gallery, curated by Khai Hori
Visual Arts Development Association, Singapore (VADA) in partnership with Intersections Gallery (Singapore) presents Feng Shui Objects, a solo exhibition by Desiree Tham (b. 1992, Singapore) and KIRTI, an innovative publication on Southeast Asian artists by Hunter Panther Deerfield (b. 1996, Vermont, USA).
Curated by Khai Hori, former Deputy Director of Artistic Programmes at Palais de Tokyo, Paris, the project introduces two newfound talents with distinctive socio-anthropological insights from Southeast Asia.
Through her sculptures, Desiree Tham, winner of the 2019 Chan Davies Art Prize, translates the traditional aesthetics and approach to ‘feng shui’, an ancient Chinese science for the calculated arrangement of objects to allow the positive flow of invisible energies.
