Singapore / The Columns Gallery

Yeo Chee Kiong (b. 1970) is a contemporary sculptor and installation artist who is fascinated with the language and spatial relationship between object, space and authorship. His work destabilises the familiar notions of spatial proportions and perspectives, whilst examining human conditions in the construction of an extended surreal world.

Throughout his career, Yeo has been bestowed with multiple outstanding awards and commendations. This includes: the NAFA Distinguished Alumni Medal for his outstanding achievement in Singapore art scene (2016), SG50 Commemorative Public Sculpture Competition, National Museum of Singapore (2015), and the JTC Green Core Public Sculpture Open Call (2014).

Thus far, he has held numerous solo exhibitions internationally, such as at Juming Art Museum, Taipei (2017), Ngee Ann Kongsi Galleries, NAFA, Singapore (2016), Cite International Des Arts, Paris (2013), and Richard Koh Fine Art Gallery, Singapore (2011),

Yeo is currently the Visiting Assistant Professor, Sculpture Department, National Taiwan University of Arts.

Yeo will be presenting his works at The Columns Gallery.
