Sharon Chin is a graduate from Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne, Australia, majoring in sculpture. She has recently returned to Kuala Lumpur. Her first solo exhibition ?Boats and Bridges? was held last month at Reka Art Space, where she created two installations and several drawings and objects to explore the idea of transitions and journeys from one place to another. Her work often deals with questions of placement, location and language as well as permanent and transitory states of mind.

Lydia Chai recently returned to Malaysia after pursuing a fine arts degree in New Zealand. She has exhibited in both countries and was a finalist in the Waikato Contemporary Art Award in 2003. Also known by the moniker 'Gnute', she writes about art on a freelance basis. For this talk, Lydia will present images from the exhibition 'Very Big Numbers Are Scary', exhibited earlier this year, which was a collaboration between her and two New Zealand artists, Rachael Grant and Hamish Palmer. The talk will revolve around the process of collaboration, with Lydia's personal slant on the possibilities and joys of the collaborative process.
