Ila

Artist, nudes.jpg

The intimate works of visual and performance artist ila (b.1985, Singapore) incorporate objects, moving images and live performance. 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.

ila's work has been shown at DECK (2021), National Gallery Singapore (2020), The Substation; NTU Centre for Contemporary Art; National Design Centre, (2019); Coda Culture, and ArtScience Museum.
