SOTA: School of the Arts Singapore


Published on Oct 04, 2017


Visual Arts faculty member Ms Zen Teh won the France-Singapore Photographic Arts Award organised by Alliance Française de Singapour with her work, The Imperative Landscape. The photography competition aimed to feature French and Singaporean professional artists on an international platform, and the winner would receive the opportunity to hold a solo exhibition.

Ms Teh's solo exhibition, Vestiges, was held at La Galerie from 7 September to 7 October 2017 and featured three works from the winning piece as well as works from her current project, Garden State Palimpsest. The project is a collaboration with her sister Nicole Teh, an architectural researcher at The Bartlett School of Architecture.

Ms Teh's experience of living in Chiang Rai City for two months at Angkrit Gallery under the artist residency programme of The Art Incubator by Objectifs Singapore allowed her to create a more intimate relationship with the landscape. The two series of work reflect her on-going interest and research on Anthropocene and our relationship with nature.
