'Setting Off' in Eight Key Points by Marine Ky
“On my way to my community printmaking studio in Cork, every time I am walking at night across an infested zone, which to me is – loud hard speech and music, signs of drunkenness, broken glasses on the footpath, the scene of bars and clubs, sex, and alcohol.
I am thinking of all my furniture, prints, and belongings stored afar, in the countryside of Battambang, the second city in Cambodia. Are they safe from humidity, mould, mites, and country mice?”
Setting Off explores movements of the mind, between the outer and inner journey. Join in a special sharing session with Marine Ky, one of the artists of the Singapore Biennale 2016. Gain insights from the artist as she delves into her innermost thoughts and brings you through a journey of reflections and inner awareness.
Admission to this talk is free. Registration is required. Admission to the galleries can be paid at the front desk.
