Tang Ling Nah

Tang Ling Nah

Born: 1971

Hometown: Singapore

Based in: Singapore

TANG Ling Nah is a Singapore-based artist and independent curator. Her work is inspired by the modern city’s transitional spaces. She reflects on urban conditions, especially the speed of life and the lack of interpersonal intimacy in urban life. She creates charcoal drawings, book art, installations, performances and videos to explore buildings, places and architectural spaces as communicators of stories about life.

In 2017, she produced the film Dreaming in Black and White: Portrait of a Singapore Artist—Tang Ling Nah directed by Singapore filmmaker Lei Yuan Bin. The documentary takes the audience on a journey into the artist’s inner world—her memories, dreams and angels, and her fascination with black-and-white media, drawing charcoal and the city’s transitional spaces.

In 2008, she represented Singapore in the 2nd Singapore Biennale and also exhibited at the 11th International Architecture Biennale in Venice (Singapore Pavilion). She was awarded the 2007/2008 Freeman Foundation Asian Artist Fellowship for a two-month residency at Vermont Studio Centre (Vermont, U.S.A) in 2008. She is also the recipient of Singapore National Arts Council’s Young Artist Award (Art) 2004, the Juror’s Choice, Philip Morris Singapore-ASEAN Art Awards 2003 and the Della Butcher Award 2000.

The exhibitions she curated include 床事─A Thing or Two about the Bed (Singapore, 2013), Drawing Out Conversations: Taipei (Taipei, 2010), Drawing Out Conversations: Hong Kong (Hong Kong, 2009) and Through the Looking Glass (Singapore, 2004). She also co-curated CODE SWITCH (Singapore, 2012) and Cinepolitans: Inhabitants of a Filmic City (Singapore, 2004).
