Spotted! Zihan Loo

Zihan Loo received an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in May 2011, and did a BFA at the School of Art, Design and Media at Nanyang Technological University (NTU). Zihan started out working in theatre, and discovered moving image as a medium only in 2005, during his first year at NTU. The moving image seemed like a medium which was a perfect amalgamation of all his interests in performance, movement, visual design and lighting.

“My work is anchored in the moving image and extends to performance and mixed-media installations. I deploy these divergent mediums to address fundamental societal and artistic questions, such as the relationship between the artist and participant, the role of the “proper” and the still under-recognized pervasiveness of shame. A quiet lyricism and poetic rhythm couches my explorations of shame, sexual content and the dangers and pleasures of self-exposure. In submitting to my own self-exposure, I propose my work as a gift to the viewer.”
