Live performance by Chicks on Speed & Studio Installation by Jeremy Sharma

Art After Dark at Gillman Barracks is a bi-monthly, night arts festival that is open to the public.
This edition’s highlight is the Singapore Open Media Festival featuring media installations by
artists worldwide.

Join us for an electrifying night with a live performance by Chicks on Speed known for their cult status as catalysts of the musical genre, electroclash and collaborations with Julian Assange, Karl Lagerfeld, Peaches and Yoko Ono among others. One of its musical duo, Alex Murray-Leslie (Australia) will joins us as Artist-in-Residence in May.

Chicks on Speed is a music and fine art ensemble formed in Munich in 1997 working in performance art, electronic dance music, collage graphics, textile design and fashion.

As part of his research residency at NTU CCA Singapore, Jeremy Sharma explores ideas around information (its associated technologies) and distraction in his studio. Drawings, collages, photographs, chess boards and animation will be presented as strategies that occupy both physical and mental spaces.

Jeremy Sharma (Singapore) works primarily as a painter, his current multidisciplinary practice investigates art as a reflection of a conscious life that observes it in the age of mechanical, industrial digital reproduction and interconnectivity.
