Lynn Lu (Singapore)

Lynn Lu is an installation/performance artist from Singapore. In her practice, the sentient body is seen as the main medium for perceiving and presenting (versus representing) meaning (versus message) through direct personal experience. Engaging vigorously with the present reality of all that is here-and-now, the meaning of her context-specific works often manifest in the resonant relationships created between herself and her audience, and between the audience themselves. Trained at Carnegie Mellon University, San Francisco Art Institute, and École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (Paris), she completed a doctoral program (A.B.D.) at Musashino Art University (Tokyo) and is currently concluding her Doctoral thesis at the University of Newcastle in Australia. Lynn has received numerous grants, awards and commissions from the Singapore National Arts Council, Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Lee Foundation, Ucross Foundation, and Carnegie Mellon University. Since 1997, Lynn has exhibited and performed extensively throughout Asia, Oceania, Europe and the Americas. Lynn currently lectures at Lasalle College of the Arts (Fine Arts) and Nanyang Technological University (School of Art, Design & Media).
