She is a part of an all-women arts collective Fertile Art Refinery, a performance collective Wuwei and a member of The Artists Village for which she co-curated this year’s Singapore Art Week presentation S23. Her recent projects include an intergenerational community programme as part of the National Gallery Singapore’s givingBac residency, a performance video presentation at M+ Hong Kong and an ongoing multi-partner community and participatory art project Renew Earth Sweat Shop on fashion waste with Post-Museum.

Veronyka Lau will dive deeper into the concepts of her Uncanny Valley work in A Blip in Time, exploring the discomforts of technology as it continues to open up possibilities for human augmentation, empathy and care. The work will have a participatory element that engages the public and wider FAR community. She is keen to explore AI, chatbots and robotics.
