Biographical Text

Kai Lam (Singapore) practices multidisciplinary art that is geared towards performative tendencies. Believing that an art practice should span across diverse mediums, he is versatile and prolific in skills of drawing, painting, sculpture, mixed-media installation, sonic art and performance art.

His involvement in the arts began in 1995 when he majored in Sculpture at Lasalle-SIA College of the Arts. In 2001, he was awarded a study grant from Lee Foundation and an education bursary from National Arts Council to undertake his Bachelor of Arts at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology where he majored in Sculpture. He has participated and collaborated in many multidisciplinary art productions and co-organised art-related events, including Artists Investigating Monuments (AIM) in 2000, under The Artists Village, which took place in various public sites in Singapore. Starting from 2003, he also co-organised a few editions of Future Of Imagination, an annual international performance art festival. In 2009, he initiated Rooted In The Ephemeral Speak (R.I.T.E.S), a platform to explore new ideas and cross-disciplinary presentations in sonic art, time-based and performance art-related practices.
