“INSTINC is not a commercial gallery... It’s a project of an artist dreamer…” Alba Escayo
Sustaining an artistic enterprise for 10 years, with its moments of tears and laughter, is no easy task. Requiring much courage and persistence, it is certainly a noteworthy milestone, made possible through the support and generosity of countless individuals.
And so, to celebrate INSTINC’s 10th anniversary and key mission to encourage collaboration, cultural exchange and the sharing of ideas in contemporary art, INSTINC is inviting 10 artists to create collaborative artworks in 7 days based on a prescribed theme, culminating in an exhibition at Studio 67 Art Space and then at the Affordable Art Fair in Singapore. The 10 artists will be a mix of locals and other nationalities, who have at one point or other shared in INSTINC’s journey, and will be randomly paired to create artworks together in 7 days.
This 7 day collaborative residency also marks the coming of a full circle; drawing inspiration from INSTINC director Yeo Shih Yun’s experience at the LindArt International Fine Arts Colony in Lendava, Slovenia, which was also one of the keys that led to the launch of INSTINC’s International Artist-in-Residence programme. The result of this collaboration will be twenty 30cm by 30cm works on canvases and twenty 60cm by 60cm works on canvases as well as two Volvo cars, one of which to be painted live during the AAF outside the F1 pit building on 21 NOV 2014 , at 630-930pm.
