I’m currently an assistant curator at Hatch Art Project and outside of that work on independent curatorial projects and research in a personal capacity. I recently graduated from the BA(Hons) Arts Management programme in LASALLE College of the Arts in Singapore. Prior to that, I was working in various art and cultural institutions, museums and galleries.

My interest lies broadly in contemporary art vis-å-vis the politics of aesthetics, with a recent focus on thinking through/of cultural institutions as dis-imagination machines (Didi-Huberman, Giroux). I’m also hoping to keep up a sustained interest in the adversarial (trojan horses, adversarial examples, generative adversarial networks or GANs, obfuscation and subterfuge) and networks of confluence (entry points, nodes, intersections, arena, forum boards, second life).

I’m always open to collaborations, commisions and general chat.
