What's on



Committed to supporting artists, curators, and researchers by offering them time and space to pursue their research without the pressure of deadlines and production commitments, the Residencies Programme values the open-ended nature of artistic research and embraces multiform expressions of creative enquiry. Aiming to facilitate the production of knowledge, this studio-based programme is dedicated to established and emerging artists and serves as platform for critical exchange in Southeast Asia. The Residencies Programme offers a wide spectrum of programmes aimed at sharing the process of artistic research with the public - Residencies OPEN / Studio Sessions / Insights, which range from open studios, artists’ talks, conversations, performances, and screenings. The Residencies Programme unfolds through annual cycles and runs by nomination only. Every year, a rotating pool of curators and arts professionals from all over the world is invited to nominate two artists for the residency. The nominated artists are subsequently invited to submit a research proposal along with their portfolio and CV. Ultimately, the Residencies Committee, an international panel of experts, reviews the submitted materials and designates the artists who are awarded the residency.


Jeremy Sharma

Residency period

4 May – 31 July 2015


Jeremy Sharma (b. 1977, Singapore) works around ideas of aesthetics and production. His practice investigates various modes of enquiry in the information age, addressing our present relationship to modernity and interconnectivity in the everyday and our place in an increasingly fragmented and artificial reality. Over the past nine years,he has had a number of solo presentations that includes, Terra Sensa, Singapore Biennale (2013), Exposition, Grey Projects, Singapore (2013) and Apropos, Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore (2012). He has also done projects with the Fundación Sebastián Mexico (2015), Busan Biennale (2014), 14th Asian Art Biennale Bangladesh (2010), Bangkok Experimental Film Festival (2008) and the ICA London (2005). His work has also been shown in numerous group exhibitions in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Italy, England and the United States.

His work has been the subject of critical discussion in various publications and is part of a number of public and private collections. He also teaches with the Faculty of Fine Arts at the LASALLE College of the Arts.


During his residency Jeremy Sharma will focus on the idea of ‘Vertical Progression' , observing the logic of production, the production of ideas and the idea of the use of the studio space through different strategies of art making. The research will be based on three phases , Longitudes, Endgames and Screensavers, White Heron and Vertical Progression. Longitudes, Endgames and Screensavers is a distractive stage that starts off with several elements going at once. White Heron will takethe form of a studio installation developed from the different phases and will conclude the project. Sharma's current research investigates abstract ideas of time, capital and economy in our present society.
