A constellation of the intimate relationships of art and experience
25 February 2016, Singapore – Artist Alecia Neo presents Unseen: Constellations from 18 March 2016 to 17 April 2016 at Objectifs. A two-year long project initiated by artist Alecia Neo, Unseen: Constellations provides a platform for seven youths who live with visual-impairment to explore their self-identities and dreams through art. Through a creative process led by the artist, students and the collaborators, the project will be presented as a large-scale multi-sensory installation comprising of seven distinctive tents.
Ranging from music to film to audio story, this socially engaged art initiative documents and presents the youths’ self-explorations and their creative processes with the artist and the collaborators. Using art as an agent, Unseen: Constellations is a bridge between sighted people and people living with visual impairment – a merging of both worlds.

Unseen: Constellation will also include a video documentation and materials from a new collaborative project titled Unseen: Shift Lab. The multi-disciplinary project is an extension of the artist’s research in collaborative processes and creating in the absence of sight. Artist Alecia Neo collaborates with musician Ng Chor Guan from Toccata Studio and theatre-makers Christopher Ling, Nandang Abdul Rahman, and Nicole Ann Thomas from TheatreThreeSixty, and participants from Dialogue in the Dark Malaysia in reimagining space and shifting public perceptions.
