In awe of natural phenomena and nature at large, Woong Soak Teng (b. 1994, Singapore) ponders on our human tendency to control and go against them. Her works often develop alongside natural processes in hopes of learning from them, embracing whatever medium that makes sense. At the core of her explorations lies the inquiry of what is nature in our present reality.
Soak graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography and Digital Imaging at the Nanyang Technological University, School of Art, Design and Media. She has participated in festivals and exhibitions internationally in Amsterdam, Auckland, Greece, Tokyo, Shanghai, Dali and Singapore. Her accolades include the Steidl Book Award Asia, Kwek Leng Joo Prize of Excellence in Photography 2018 and Singapore Young Photographer Award 2018.
