The notion of social responsibility is instrumental in Singh’s practice as she seeks to question the value of a monetary system and attempts to introduce a intimate relationship to social value. By challenging economic worth What Colour is the Sacred? encourages the audience to participate in an exchange which ultimately sculpts, physically and conceptually, the form of the artwork. In trading a considered object, service, or piece of knowledge each viewer is invited to remove one of the artist’s sculptures from the Gallery and in this way contribute to the evolution of the piece. Singh maintains that by working in the Volunteer sector for two years, she became conversant with using the art as a means to make a big difference to a small group of people. The effectiveness of seeing art as a tool has therefore became evident in relation to empowerment and provides a sense of value and worth to marginalised peoples through the medium of participation and engagement. In Union Singh brings to question the Social conscience and right of sacred practice, themes of embracing what is important to us as individuals, and what it means to be a community. Union looks at the way art can function both as an elitist status symbol and a poignant vehicle for social change - Deborah Lawler-Dormer
