Simryn Gill, Artist in Residence
21–25 February 2005
Simryn Gill is the Australian Centre of Asia–Pacific Art's first Artist in Residence. She used the residency to consult with Gallery curators and conservators, and do Library research for a new work which investigates the histories of exchange and value in relation to beads and beaded necklaces.
Born in Singapore in 1959, Simryn has lived in Malaysia, the United Kingdom and India. Currently living and working in Sydney, she has exhibited widely in Australia and internationally. She is represented in the Queensland Art Gallery’s Collection by several works, including Forking tongues 1992.
Simryn’s residency was supported by an Australia Council Fellowship.
