CHERIN SIM (visual artist)
Born in Singapore in 1987, Cherin Sim is an artist who is trained in painting. She frequently employs installation to express her concerns about consumer culture. The inspiration behind her pivotal work, "A Birkin For You?", 2008, became the foundation for her subsequent pieces which often blurred the boundaries between fine art and fashion design.
Besides being an artist, Cherin is also an accomplished bag designer who has collaborated with international brands. She was conferred her second international award in 2009 in the Design-A-Bag Competition, where she was invited to Hong Kong Fashion Access to receive the prize. In the same year, she received the Winston Oh Undergraduate Practice Award. In 2013, she received the Winston Oh Postgraduate Research Scholarship and had her first relational art exhibition, "Bringing Back Tradition: The Leather Workshop”, in Singapore after being trained in leatherworking in Italy.

SHYNZ PRODUCTIONS presents an Irish music performance by Celtic Rovers for SPORE Art Salon. The Celtic Rovers are made up of two classically trained, unique individuals, namely, Pamela Ng and Michelle Ong. The dynamic duo met in 2011 at their tertiary institution's piano ensemble where they started actively performing piano duets and classical works for school and charity events. Compelled by the beauty of Celtic music, they subsequently turned to playing Irish medleys on tin whistle, guitar and bodhrán (a traditional Irish drum). The pair hopes to share their experiences on folk music with the general public.
