Loo Zihan, Singapur

Period of residency: March 2015

Singcat association promotes the international grant residency between Singapur and Catalonia with the collaboration of Hangar and Les Bernardes de Salt (Girona).

Loo Zihan is a performance and moving-image artist and educator based in Singapore. He is interested in the affectual transference and transmutation of shame in his work. His recent body of work strives to expose the tension between the flesh of the body with the bone of the archive.

He graduated with his Master of Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011. He was granted a merit scholarship upon admission to the programme and was awarded a graduate fellowship upon graduation. He was part of the pioneer batch of students to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts in the School of Art, Design and Media, Nanyang Technological University. He was named valedictorian and represented his cohort in their convocation ceremony, delivering a passionate speech on the topic of artistic compromises and censorship.

Zihan’s moving-image works have been selected and screened at various international film festivals such as the Pusan International Film Festival (South Korea). His co-directorial debut feature ‘Solos’ has also been selected for competition in AFI Festival (Los Angeles) and Deauville Asian Film Festival (France). Most notably, ‘Solos’ was awarded the ‘Nuovo Sguardi’ award at the 23rd Turin GLBT Film Festival (Italy). Beyond his moving-image works, Zihan’s solo performances have also been presented at various performance events such as the Macau International Performance Art Festival and Rapid Pulse International Performance Art Festival (Chicago).
