Working primarily with photography, video and participatory workshops, Alecia develops long-term projects involving a variety of individuals and collaborators, overlooked communities and their spaces.
Her debut site-specific project, “Villa Alicia” (2011) investigated the fragility of memory, through the transformation of the 4000 sq ft private home of the late Singaporean feminist Dr. Nalla Tan, into a public gallery, which was demolished shortly after the six day exhibition. The project was later extended into her installation “Goddess of Mercy“, commissioned by the M1 Fringe Festival in 2012, Art & Faith.
She has been commissioned by the Singapore Art Museum, Singapore International Foundation, the National Library Board (Singapore) and the National Arts Council (Singapore) and the National Museum of Singapore for art projects. Her art works have been exhibited in various international festivals and galleries such as Singapore Art Museum (Singapore), Valentine Willie Fine Art (Singapore), Singapore International Photography Festival, the International Orange Festival (China), University of Bangkok (Thailand), Cittadellarte (Italy) and Noordelicht International Photo Festival (Netherlands).
In 2012, she spent four months in artist residency with Cittadelarte-Fondazione Pistoletto’s UNIDEE programme (Biella, Italy). She has developed projects in Malaysia, Taiwan and Singapore centering on communities living with blindness since 2012, exploring how meaning and narratives are translated in the absence of sight. She is also currently working on a 3 year long collaborative project with elderly communities in Singapore, Both Sides, Now.
She is also an Artist Lead with Brack, a trans-border arts platform for socially engaged artists. She was awarded the Young Artist Award in 2016.
