About The Artist
Singapore-based visual and performance artist ila (b. 1985) incorporates objects, moving images and live performance into intimate works. Through weaving imagined narratives into existing realities, she seeks to create alternative nodes of experience and entry points into the peripheries of the unspoken, the tacit and the silenced. Using her body as a space of tension, negotiation and confrontation, her works generate discussion about gender, history and identity in relation to pressing contemporary issues. Her work has been shown at DECK; National Gallery Singapore; Substation; NTU Centre for Contemporary Art; National Design Centre ; Coda Culture; ArtScience Museum.
