My practice explores surfaces and supports as the essential conditions of my medium to cross fertilise unlikely materials. By focusing on the shift between the horizontal and vertical spaces, translation occurs through the process of erasure, synthesis and resurfacing. I examine how this translation process can lose and gain another life, another set of possibilities and sets of audiences. Spatial interventions incorporate everyday items such as local spices, low budget materials such as sugar and found materials including swamp water, clay and reference to textiles. Created for interaction rather than viewing, my practice invites the audience to partake in the experience of the work through active interaction and the focus on action itself as process that transforms places into imaginative and thought provoking spaces.

En En See is an artist based in Melbourne and has a practice in spatial painting exploring the agency of space and place. En En completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in painting at Victorian College of the Arts in 2015. Following completion, En En travelled to Eastern Europe for an international art residency at D’Clinic, Hungary. Through a process of interexchange she developed new work in spatial installation.
