Event description
Join this talk as Artist Veronyka Lau reflects and shares on her inspirations behind her artwork.

About this event

Three Pockets Full of Rye is an “living art installation” housed at the newly revamped Choa Chu Kang Public Library where artist Veronyka Lau uses found objects to interpret her own relationship with food and the concepts of sustainability and security. In mirroring the towering glass city around us, the artwork alludes to our modern life of living to be seen, yet with much hidden from view. Three Pockets Full of Rye is also about our relationship with objects - having them, wanting them, and finding some to be out of reach. In this talk,Veronyka reflects and shares on the experiences, conversations and people who have inspired the making of the installation.

About the speaker

An English Lit grad, social and animal welfare advocate and a martial artist turned artist, Veronyka's love of collecting trinkets and shiny objects led her to using “found” objects like common household items or discarded trash in an artistic way. By viewing these objects as components to an art piece, she shows us how we have the opportunity to transform mundane objects into something unique that we can ascribe personal meaning to. Her previous works have been displayed at Stamford Arts Centre and Coda Culture.
