PERFORMANCE / LECTURE: "That Craving Within Me to Express Myself", Pooja Nansi


  • National Gallery Singapore 1 Saint Andrew's Road Singapore, 178957 Singapore (map)

“And even if I fail I shall be happy with the world because that craving within me to express myself through the medium of painting has been satisfied” – Lim Cheng Hoe, 1930.

When do you become an artist? Is it when you realise you have something you need to say? 
What if you never finish saying all you want to say? 
What about real life—the bills and broken appliances that need fixing?

This unique lecture-performance by poet Pooja Nansi explores what drives someone to become an artist in Singapore, through an examination of Lim Cheng Hoe’s paintings and journals.
