Stay, create and present in Tokyo with 3331 Arts Chiyoda's residence program
Yeoh Lian Heng
Residence Period: 2012.03.01-2012.03.31
Born in 1978. In 2004 founded the art space and collective "Lost Generation" with his artist peers, pursuing eclectic expression in the exploration of art's role in society. Building up highly meaningful relationships with local communities his projects often directly serve the specific neighbourhoods they are based in.
Yeoh aims to connect with both Malaysian and Chinese communities in Tokyo, in particularly focusing upon senior citizens who may share their memories of the local area with him. Through interviews and workshops Yeoh will explore the history and various cultures which have combined to create the current condition of the city and offer its older residents an opportunity to express their particular relationship with it.
