About The Artist

Alecia Neo develops long-term projects that involve collaborative partnerships with individuals,communities and networks. Her practice unfolds primarily through photography, video, and participatory workshops that address modes of radical hospitality, caregiving, and wellbeing.

Her recent projects include ramah-tamah (2020), a dance film commissioned by the Asian Civilisations Museum, and Power to the People (2019), a site-specific art installation commissioned by Goethe Institut Singapur. She is currently working on Care Index, an experimental platform that collects and features diverse practices of care performed by people from all walks of life. Care Index was initiated in Dec 2020 as part of the larger artistic research project on care practices, building on a previous collaborative project titled, Between Earth and Sky, which was developed with a group of caregivers in Singapore. Care Index has been recently presented at The Listening Biennial, Assembly for Permacircular Museums (ZKM, Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe), New Season of Care (Asia-Art-Activism) and Presence of Mind (Gallery Lane
Cove, NSW, Australia).

She is the co-founder of Brack, a platform for socially engaged art and collaborative practices.
Alecia was the recipient of the Young Artist Award 2016, conferred by the National Arts Council
in Singapore.

Home Visits is Neo’s documentation of Queenstown neighbourhood’s residents and their homes. As part of making this work the artist asked to be invited into these residents' homes to captur these intimate portraits. Queenstown is one of Singapore’s oldest housing estates and is populated by a cross-section of Singaporeans, some of whom have lived in this area all thei lives and formed strong social groups, while others are making this place their temporary home. Neo’s images reveal an insider’s peek into the psyche and lives of this small, interconnected
community of residents.
