Delhi-based visual artist Gagandeep Singh will be on a studio residency at Rote Fabrik in Zurich. During his residency in Switzerland, Singh hopes to visit technology intensive spaces such as the Gotthard-Basistunnel and hold these in contrast to natural spaces like Vierwaldstättersee in order to draw connections between what was and what is, and to observe the sheer transformation of space.
“I’m interested in the relationship between science and nature, the balance between how we live, take decisions, create and consume things,” says Singh. “It’s the nonsensical nature of human thinking which fascinates me. That anything can be possible.”
Residencies stimulate creative and mutual exchange between artists.
Pro Helvetia offers three months’ studio residencies and research residencies where artists are encouraged to develop their practice in a climate of cultural diversity.
To Gagandeep Singh, there is “something fascinating, strange about how we go on in creating things, modifying, demolishing, rebuilding, learning.” His experiments with drawing have involved engaging with illustration, cartoons, storytelling, memory mapping, site specific installations, wall art and artist books.
