Ferry is an installation artist, designer, musician, educator, and collaborator. Honed through a practice that spans design, music, art, education and theatre, FERRY’s edge is in the ability to synthesise ideas and practices from diverse fields, utilising different methodologies to create audience experiences that engage through multiple means. Her works range from large-scale installations such as Sky Kave – first commissioned by Singapore International Festival of Arts (May 2018), recommissioned for Reflections Festival (Oct 2018) and Light to Night Festival (Jan 2019) – to collaborative performances with various art makers such as Songs of Tau for Project Utopia (The Theatre Practice, Aug 2019) and Poppy (2020), centring on Deaf awareness, dementia and eco-theatre respectively. Driven by ideas regardless of form, she continues to challenge and change perspectives on social issues. FERRY is an associate artist with The Theatre Practice and holds a Masters in Pedagogy & Practice (Goldsmith’s, University of London).
Experimental Micro-Fellowship 2021
Ferry and Xiao Ting’s Micro Fellowship project Land of Loss: WISDOMS is an interdisciplinary investigation into concepts of loss in the context of Singapore’s frenzied mixing of cultures and rapid social transformation. Focusing on intergenerational knowledge and combining social research with formal experimentation, their Micro Fellowship will uncover new artistic possibilities for this developing work.
