Artist Website

This residency / learning programme hosted by our Regional Mobility Partner La Teinturerie in Antananarivo, Madagascar, will work with knowledge sharing and skills development. Within this 5-day learning residency, a visiting artist and local participants will work towards a better understanding of the relationship between the world and the environment.

Kim Yip Tong has been selected by the board of La Teinturerie to lead this workshop from 12-16 October 2019 at Is’art Galerie at La Teinturerie.

Kim Yip Tong is a multi-disciplinary artist from Mauritius. She did her foundation at Olivier de Serres in Paris before receiving her BA in Textile Design at Central Saint Martins and MA in Information Experience Design at the Royal College of Art in London. Fascinated by the living world, Kim likes her art to be in motion, whether through moving image or physical computing. Her curiosity encourages her to seek collaborations and apply analogue and material-driven techniques to digital processes, merging craft and tradition with new technologies.
