About the Artist

Lavender CHANG’s focus lies in conceptual photography. Chang’s process-based practice is a reflection of her acute observations of the subtle nuances of life. She focuses on these experiences to create works that allow for further contemplation and with time, be able to leave behind traces of her mortality. Chang’s extensive exhibition history includes solo exhibitions: A Glimpse of Radiance from Under, FOST Gallery (2022); Diverse Oneness, commissioned by Alliance Française de Singapour for its 70 anniversary, and Floating Rays of a Wanderer, Art Porters Gallery (both in 2019), I Am a Seed Though A Different One From You, The Arts House, Singapore (2017), The Movingly Minute Scale of a Restricted Life, Societe Generale, Alliance Française de Singapour, Singapore (all 2016).

In 2023, Sheltered Dreams, a new series specially commissioned by the Peranakan Museum, was shown at their reopening after an extensive renovation. Selected group shows include the Bandung Photography Triennale (2022), Ecopsychology, Objectifs – Centre for Photography and Film, Singapore (2019), In Praise of Shadows, ADM Gallery, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (2017), Sensorium 360°, Singapore Art Museum, Singapore (2014), Kuala Lumpur International Photo Awards, Malaysia (2011), and International Orange Photo Festival, China (2010). In recent years, Chang has been deeply involved in film-making. Her cinematography work for John Clang’s debut feature film, Their Remaining Journey, premiered at the 2018 International Film Festival Rotterdam and garnered a nomination for the festival's Bright Future Award. It is also the opening film for the National Gallery Singapore’s Painting with Light: Festival of International Films on Art. In 2020, A Love Unknown is selected by the International Film Festival Rotterdam for its Bright Future Main Programme and Asian premiere at the 12th DMZ International Documentary Film Festival, on Singular Screens by Singapore International Festival of Arts, curated by Asian Film Archive in 2021. Her debut feature film, Absent Smile, had its world premiere at the 2022 Singapore International Film Festival's Singapore Panorama section and the Reciprocal 2023: Asian Film Archive x Eye Filmmuseum.
