Ingrid Singh (icing) sculpts the human body using a variety of textiles and other materials. Her work forms a conduit between the intimately personal experience of fetishism and the experience of life in a crowded urban environment. It examines the way we have shaped our urban world and so ourselves. For some, the city becomes a close, vital support and protection. For others, communal life is an act of confinement or uneasy conformity. These works in bamboo, steel, silk, silicon and rubber [corsetry and Japanese traditional intimate garments], give us a way to feel as well as to see our lives in an expanding Canberra.
