Nothing Remains the Same, and All at Once – Workshop by artist Mary Bernadette Lee

In this full-day workshop, participants will be introduced to the process of art making from research and conceptualisation to execution. The day will consist of a trip to the beach to collect plastic waste and organic debris like shells washed ashore to create artworks out of these found materials during the second part of the workshop. Using NTU CCA Singapore's exhibition, The Oceanic as an entry point to raise awareness on the dire health of our oceans and the islands most affected, participants will learn how to engage with questions of climate change, as well as its impacts.

Designed for families and participants aged 14 and up.

Admission is free but registration is required. If you are planning to attend with more than 1 person, please indicate the number of tickets you would like to register for. Meeting point will be issued to registered participants nearer to the event date. Transport will be provided from meeting point to NTU CCA Singapore for the second part of the workshop.

For teachers registered under MOE who would like to bring their school groups, please write to for application through NAC-AEP.

Mary Bernadette Lee’s (Singapore) practice is a phenomenological approach to understanding the relationship between exterior topography of body, architecture and place, and the interior tapestry of psychological states. This relational dialectics are expressed through her paintings that foreground the architecture of her as a person and an artist. Lee graduated from the National University of Singapore with a BA in English Literature and Communications & New Media in 2006, and with a BFA (Hons) in Visual Communication from Nanyang Technological University School of Art, Design and Media in 2014.
