TIFFANY SINGH // BORN 1978 AUCKLAND, Nz // LIVES & WORKS IN LONDON UK

Born in New Zealand of Indian & Pacific descent, her practice explores relationships & engagement between arts, culture & subjective well-being. Singh has worked on sustainable community outreach, exploring engagement in the arts that focus on expanding research within the social sciences. Her interest in cultural preservation combined with a integrated social discourse has seen her use the arts as a vehicle for education, outreach & empowerment. Singh has worked at scale both in New Zealand & internationally. Her works often suggest positive impact by guiding audiences through fine art frameworks to engender policy & advocacy of social cohesion. Her practice is informed by eastern philosophy & social ethics that affect well-being to foster unique art & social impact outcomes.

She has represented New Zealand at the 18th Biennale of Sydney 2012, the Contemporary Asian Arts Biennial 2011 at the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts and the 12th Taewha Eco Arts Festival in Korea in 2018.
