Artist-in-Residence Sai Chen brings kinetic art to the Yale-NUS community and sparks new ideas through artistic interactions

6 Nov 2020, Yale-NUS College

“What is beside me? What do I see and feel? How do I understand bodily gestures?”

Through his work, Yale-NUS College’s visiting artist Sai Chen (aka Chen Sai Hua Kuan) seeks to engage his audience with these questions.

Sai is at Yale-NUS this semester as part of the College’s Artist-in-Residence (AIR) Programme. Launched in January 2020, the Programme positions contemporary art as living practice as well as creates art that increases the understanding of China and Chinese culture. A first-of-its-kind artist residency at a liberal arts and sciences college in Asia, the Programme is supported by the Tan Chin Tuan Foundation through the Tan Chin Tuan Chinese Culture and Civilisation Programme.
