Panni Poh Yoke Loh: Whisper Residency
2 March – 16 March 2005
Open Studio: 10 – 16 March
Panni is a British Chinese Artist who references the spiritual nature of the natural environment and works to creatively connect people from diverse cultural backgrounds with each other and their environment. She explores the connections and interdependency between private and public spaces considering the spiritual, physical, philosophical and political using paintings, printmaking, decorative textiles, events, sound, video and visual installations in her work. Her private practice of painting is what energetically feeds her public art.
During her residency Panni Poh Yoke Loh aimed to address questions around the impact of spiritual and ecological issues on the art practice of second and third generation British Chinese Artists. She welcomed artists to get in contact and discuss how issues of spirituality and ecology affect their work bringing stories and artefacts to complement memories and experience located with the present artist but recalling past locations of the Chinese Diaspora sometimes in lands other than the UK.
