Magicten In The Media

2019

Mimi was featured by CNA on 2019 to talk about the project to shine light to the campaign for the migrant workers. Magicten was approached to be the main artist to build panel walls out of resin to transform the look to resemble a glass room, the room holds the other artists who focused on light, sound and video.

This contemporary outlook mimic’s the outlook to look like coloured glass, which provokes the meaning to ‘look deeper’ than the surface. The Resin Room is a 3cm thick panel walls measuring 15m total in length and 5m height, embedded in the panel are the migrant worker photos, quotes, poems and stories.

This project is blessed to have Madam Halimah graced the exhibit with the amazing team. The exhibit was held at Li Ka Shing Library and SMU, 2019. National University of Singapore, and throughout the year exhibited at WeWorks Suntec, Central @ ClarkeQuay and featured in the Straits Times.

2020

The year of Covid was not kind to anyone. It caused many to feel much enclosed within their homes with limited flexibility. Mimi was featured on Vasantham, ‘Hello Hello Sugama’ Season 3 Ep 11, to talk about mental health amongst senior citizens to feature how art can be the healing factor for such times. A therapeutical healing art class which can destress the mind and feel fresh again.

As she specializes in a unique material called resin which is slowly on the rise in the art scene in Singapore. The importance of this is to help release anxiety and emotional release for mind and body leads the mind to think differently in a new creative process.

Mimi was such a gem to work with! She’s patient and kind and so so encouraging towards others! It was definitely an experience to remember making jewelry for the first time! The workshop was easy to grasp and learn and I’m absolutely in love with the outcome! Will definitely be back to try out the other classes!

Love the entire experience. You get to design and make your own resin earrings and with the materials provided the possibility is endless. The instructor/owner is a lovely lady, love her to bits:)

Perfect 10 out of 10 experience for a lovely weekend. The required skill set was easy to pick up and the end product will quite possibly be an artistic feature at home
