The seventh edition of the Singapore Biennale is named Natasha. The act of naming serves as a prompt to artists, collaborators, and audiences to re-discover ways of seeing and relating to the world. Going to Natasha is to embrace the possibility of intimacy and spontaneity afforded by such recognition, as well as to reflect on the transformative potential within life and its relations — from self to others, from human to non-human, from living to non-living and vice versa, and beyond. The artists and collaborators thus become ‘fellow travellers’ in the journey of Natasha, expressed through artistic imagination and research. Featuring over 50 artists and collaborators embarking on a collective journey with Natasha, Singapore Biennale 2022 takes place from 16 October 2022 to 19 March 2023. Join us as we bring you a series of talks, performances and workshops!

13–15 Jan 2023

The sculptural dyad The Hybrid Intermediates – Flourishing Electrophorus Duo (2022) by artist Haegue Yang was conceived specially for the Singapore Biennale 2022. Poised on casters, each life-sized work features sculpted electrical outlets housed in “bodies,” which are topped with colourful gardens of plastic vegetables. These complex and self-insisting sculptures address the actual and metaphorical possibility of movement. Watch this dynamic pair come to life in this live activation.
