Biographical Text

Gilles Massot (France/Singapore) is a multidisciplinary artist and academic whose work is based on the idea of “the space between things” and aims to establish links and decipher the narratives existing between disciplines, people, occurrences, and parts of the world. His visual art practice more specifically deals with the theory of photography and its relation to time and space. After studying architecture and photography in Marseille, he came to live in Singapore in 1981. His early participation to the local art scene saw him involved in a string of seminal art events, including the first editions of the Festival of Arts Fringe and the 1987 Yin Yang Festival. He currently lives in Singapore where he teaches in LASALLE – College of the Arts. His work is part of the LTA Integrated Art Program (Buona Vista Station), the Singapore Art Museum and the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris among other collections. He is a recipient of the French cultural award Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres.
