Suzann Victor is a prolific Singaporean artist whose practice spans over 20 years, from her early practice in the late 1980s as an award-winning abstract painter in Singapore to being the first female Singaporean representative at the 49th Venice Biennale.
At STPI, Suzann Victor explored themes of post-colonialism, deconstructing and reconstructing the perceived cultural and family unit, skillfully utilising materiality to draw out metaphorical and literal opacities in the overall discourse of histories, geographies, and cultures. New works include etchings and gestural paper paintings and these are unusual additions to her practice consisting of theatrical devices, kinetic mechanisms, performance installations and object experimentations with the body, chandeliers and light.
Victor’s installations have graced international platforms such as the 6th Havana Biennale, 2nd Asia-Pacific Triennial at Queensland Art Gallery, the Adelaide Biennale (2008), and the 5th Seoul International Media Art Biennale, Korea. She was also a recipient of the 2009 Civitella Ranieri Foundation Fellowship.
