anGie seah’s multidisciplinary practise explores human nature in relation to the social environment, through encounters with the ephemeral realm of sound. Her work playfully traverses the domains of drawing, sculpture, performance and installation, giving form to the shapeless aural experience. anGie’s intense and emotive performances evoke the complexities of the human psyche, breaking out of the limitations of spoken language in search of authentic expression and primal beauty; the unrestrained voice begins to embody a language with its own sacred vocabulary, synthesising new meanings, contexts and associations through its raw articulation. Spontaneity is a key artistic strategy for anGie, allowing chance and intuition to navigate a range of shifting emotional resonances and psychological states.
