Genevieve Chua (Chinese: 蔡艾芳) (born 1984, Singapore) is a visual artist who works primarily through abstraction. Chua pursues an unfurling narrative that is informed by natural history and linguistics. While contested notions of nature and wilderness persist across her work, the form taken by her exhibitions – whether installations, images or objects – is mediated through these processes.

    Adinandra Belukar (2011)

    Genevieve Chua As Brutal As by Genevieve Chua

    A work commissioned by the Singapore Biennale, the installation consists of 2 videos and graphite drawings on black walls. All walls are a wash of matt-black, and on them are graphite drawings of "bursts". Closest to the entrance is a video of a tree that revolves continuously, on loop. There are two entrances to the installation leads to a long narrow corridor in cul-de-sac fashion. At the dead-end of the corridor is the second video on a plasma screen. It features flora that is luminous in the dark. The installation is illuminated by 3 sources of light, sunlight from the door-less entrance; the overhead projection from the video; and the flicker emitted from the plasma screen.

    After the Flood (2010)

    The series highlights weeds and vines that rain down on existing vegetation and form carpets from tree to tree. These scenes are found at the margins of Adinandra Belukar (secondary forest) found in Singapore. When grown in a small pot, some of these weeds will not grow anymore than a few feet and will live for years and years. However, in an expanse of space, it sprawls rapidly and can grow up to about a foot a day, smothering anything in its path. With its dense tangle of hairy stems and large leaves, it suffocates other vegetation of their sunlight. Depending on tastes, an establishment of these weeds may be regarded as a pest or something of a beautiful sight. The series exists as hand-painted photographs in diptychs and triptychs. In 2011, the triptych After the Flood #18, #19, #20 was sold at Sotheby's Modern and Contemporary Southeast Asian Paintings in Hong Kong.
