Description

The Space Beneath My Skin Is Closed to My Reason Today (2016) is a new performance by Glasgow-based artist Ruth Barker. Developed in consultation with artist Yeo Chee Kiong, The Space Beneath My Skin will take place from within Chee Kiong's major exhibition A Beauty Centre, at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Singapore.  The spoken word performance, delivered as a live internet broadcast between Scotland and Singapore, will weave a sliding narrative of Vogue magazine sidebars, diet tips, the depths of self knowledge, and clip on earrings. RUTH BARKER lives and works in Glasgow, Scotland. She works with text and performance. Her practice throws together moments of strange poetry and autobiographical sketches, with echoes of humanity’s oldest stories. www.ruthbarker.com YEO CHEE KIONG lives and works in Singapore. He is an award-winning sculptor known for his thought provoking and unique works that often present playful and unexpected juxtapositions. He is concerned with questions of perception, the poetics, and the materiality of the art object.  www.abeautycenter.com       www.cheekiongyeo.com
