Wei Leng Tay

Informed by close interactions with people, the artistic projects of Wei Leng Tay (b. 1978, Singapore) address the significance of personal relationships, family histories, societal structures, national narratives, and patterns of migration questioning ingrained modes of perception and representation. Often using a mediated documentary approach to image-making, Tay‚ intimate works explore intergenerational dialogues as well as the affective and political impact of displacement upon one‚ cultural identity. Crossings, her most recent solo exhibition articulated in four parts, took place at NUS Museum, Singapore (2018-19). She has participated in numerous international group exhibitions.
