Naiise Iconic x 30th SGIFF
This November, we merge the worlds of film and art by shining the spotlight on two of our local independent creatives, filmmaker Gladys Ng and artist Mary Bernadette Lee. Titled “&”, this creative collaboration seeks to explore the quiet uneasiness of first encounters and the delicate transition to what happens after.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Gladys Ng’s films reflect her nature, nuanced and subtle, interspersed with wry humour. Her short films My Father After Dinner was awarded Best Singapore Short Film at the 26th SGIFF, and the festival-commissioned short The Pursuit of a Happy Human Life opened the 27th edition. Her latest short, Still is Time, was in competition at Uppsala International Film Festival.
Mary Bernadette Lee is an artist, educator, illustrator. Her artistic practice takes the phenomenological approach investigating relationships between body, architecture and space, and psychological states relating to Self, Identity and Home. She collects people’s experiences through collaborations through artist-led programmes exploring an inquiry into relationships relating to Self, Identity, Community and Home.
