"Your creative self is a delicate creature. I have been honing my own creative side for a long time. Unavoidably, I became fascinated by the theory of creativity - how to consciously understand and harness it. Creativity can help us absorb and be inspired by the world around us, it can help problem solve, it can lead to kindness, adventure as well as innovation."
Nicola Anthony, 2016
Join us for an evening conversation with the artists of group exhibition 'Singapore's Intertwined Roots'.
Since the 15th century, Singapore has been at the crossroads of commercial routes. From China and central Asia to Europe, from Yemen and Oman to Singapore, merchants have travelled with the monsoon winds and stopped over in Singapore exchanging silk, spices, fragrances and more. Rich cultural interactions occurred in the wake of these commercial exchanges.
This group show proposes to discover Singapore’s cultural roots through artworks by Armenian, Malay, Chinese and Indian artists: Sharis Garabedian, Julayla Jalil, June Lee Yu Juan, Pang, Marc Nair, Kavita Issar Batra, Nicola Anthony.
On the opening day of group exhibition Singapore's Intertwined Roots, Nicola Anthony delivers an artist's talk with fellow artists Kavita Issar Batra and Julayla Jalil, and curator and gallerist Marie Pierre Molfor, for the American Women's Association of Singapore.
Nicola was invited to deliver the Yellow Ribbon Artist Mentors' Speech at Singapore Art Museum, addressing honourable guests and SAM board members on the opening night of the Yellow Ribbon Art Community Exhibition of 2017: For Better Endings and New Beginnings.
Speaking on behalf of the three artist mentors, Nicola exlpains how together contemporary artists Barry Yeow, Kim Whye Kee, and she led the Yellow Ribbon Project workshops with Singapore Art Museum and Changi Prison in 2017, and created the Flow of Time– a commissioned sculpture that reflects their experiences.
Nicola Anthony and Marc Nair will share about the genesis of the artworks showcased in “Scents of Singapore”. They will explain how they collaborated to incorporate the poetry of Marc in Nicola’s artworks and to talk about the history of Kampong Glam neighborhood. With this talk the audience will be embarked on a poetic journey through space and time.
