Alecia Neo

Artist Lead

Alecia Neo is visual artist based in Singapore, and trained in fine art photography at the School of Art, Design and Media in Nanyang Technological University. A large part of her artistic practice is about exploring the relationship between people, their contexts and their living spaces; reflecting on how our identity is embedded in our possessions and homes. Working primarily with photography, video and installation, she produces bodies of portraits involving a variety of individuals, overlooked communities and their spaces. Her debut site-specific project, “Villa Alicia” (2011) investigated the fragility of memory, through the transformation of the 4000 sq ft private home of the late Singaporean feminist Dr. Nalla Tan, into a public gallery, which was demolished shortly after the six day exhibition. In 2012, she was artist-in-residence at Cittadellarte’s “Università delle Idee”, Italy, which operates with the agenda of art for social transformation.

Alecia is currently working on a long-term participatory project titled Unseen: Constellations, with youths living with visual-impairment.
