Plastique Kinetic Worms

Plastique Kinetic Worms was formed in April 1998 and was registered as a non-profit art society on April 2000. Plastique Kinetic Worms is an artist initiative formed by a group of people comprising of artists, curators and professionals. This initiative was sparked by the idea from the desire to create an alternative art space to the commercial and institutional art scene. While the local art scene has focused mainly on the mainstream and established art, Plastique Kinetic Worms’ objective is to create awareness for the young contemporary artists. Plastique Kinetic Worms seeks to establish a contemporary art space dedicated to the fostering of contemporary art in Singapore. The society aims towards establishing a contemporary art space, which is able to create greater professionalism in the arts and establish Singapore contemporary art on the global art scene.

Plastique Kinetic Worms also aims to form a platform for the artists whose works are sometimes experimental in nature and often have difficulties in finding exposure for their works. Other aspects of the society aims to form discourses on art between the artists and public through forums, workshops, artists’ talks, discussions and artists- in- residence programs. The society has been engaging in exhibitions of contemporary art to the local public and some of the projects have been presented overseas. To date we have presented 40 exhibitions since we started of both solo and group exhibitions of both local and foreign artists. Artist initiatives network attempts to explore with various artist initiatives or artists run spaces regionally and internationally through the concept of networking and fostering relationship. Artist initiative network ventures the possibilities of bringing together different organizations to establish artists’ exchanges between cultures and countries. It is also an attempt to gain greater understanding of the forming of artists run space.
