Underwater artist Emma Critchley (UK) is the first winner of the three year EARTH WATER SKY residency programme.

AiRx presents Disappearing Moon @Art Stage Singapore
A Talk with Genevieve Chua and Emma Critchley
Singaporean Genevieve Chua and Briton Emma Critchley share with the audience their experiences, collaborative process and the new works arising from their participation in an artist-in-residency-exchange (AiRx) programme run by the Singapore International Foundation and British Council, Singapore. The two visual artists, whose practices are rooted in fine-art photography, spent three weeks in each other’s countries, interacting with arts communities, continuing their research and developing new work. This led to new solo and collaborative works presented in an exhibition, Disappearing Moon, in Singapore and the United Kingdom.
