charmaine poh 傅秀璇

is an artist working across media and performance to peel apart, interrogate, and hold ideas of agency, repair, and the body across worlds. Her current focus, THE YOUNG BODY UNIVERSE, is a series of enactments considering the potentialities of the feminist techno-body. She is based between Berlin and Singapore. She is a co-founder of the magazine Jom and a member of the Asian Feminist Studio for Art and Research (AFSAR). She is a participating artist in the 60th Venice Biennale - Foreigners Everywhere.
