About the Artist

Tang Ling Nah is a Singapore-based artist, independent curator and art educator. Her work is inspired by the city’s transitory spaces, such as the void decks in Singapore public housing, alleys, shopping malls and Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) stations. Besides drawing with charcoal on paper, wood and concrete walls, Tang has also created on-site installations, book art, performances and videos to explore buildings, places and architectural spaces as communicators of stories about life. Her work expresses the paradox of architecture as possibly facilitative and inhibitive of relational development. Tang has participated in numerous local and overseas residencies and group exhibitions.
