The Pink Period
September 7 – November 10, 2019
Public opening: Saturday, September 7, 19:00 – 22:00
Exhibition hours: Tuesday – Sunday, 10:00 – 19:00

During her three-month residency, Singh has used her multidisciplinary approach to transform Bangkok 1899 into an immersive Social Practice Hub. Looking after her two young children while simultaneously building this exhibition, she exemplifies a new contemporary art paradigm to enable women artists, who are also mothers, to live and work in a supportive residency environment.

This new suite of work explores the narrative of Women’s Liberation through objects of the domestic. From multiple collaborations with other women artists, Singh maps out factors that affect how women participate in various artistic disciplines. These relationships provide a narrative around the history, identity and technical skills related to the production of so-called “women’s” work. Through performative aspects and subtle gestures, The Pink Period provides an opportunity to learn about, and to address issues that affect women artists.

Singh developed this concept through the collaborative project Women’s Art Project Asia during her residency at Taipei Artist Village (Taiwan). For The Pink Period, she invited Taiwanese artist Jui-Pin Chang to build upon their existing research to delve further into societal expectations, family obligations and being classified as a minority voice within the art world.
