About rachael cheong
Rachael Cheong (b. 1994, Singapore) graduated from the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague with a Bachelors in Fashion Design. She still has a 100 years of sleep debt to pay off. Being the hardworking fashion slave she is, she has swept the floor for designers such as A.F. Vandevorst and LVMH prize winner Marine Serre. Always tired but will work for a matcha latte, Cheong works under the artist name Closet Children where she explores her fascination with the dark side of human nature, the distortion of the familiar and comfortable.
About sheryll goh
Sheryll Goh (b. 1993, Singapore) graduated from the Glasgow School of Art, with a Bachelors in Textile Design and poisonous jellies. Sustained on an artist diet of £3 Tesco meal deals, she has organised the toolbox for Glasgow-based design curatorial unit Panel and professionally delivered invites across London for 2018 BFC/Vogue Fashion Fund winner Molly Goddard. Goh works under the studio name PANDAN DREAMS where she delves into the drama of messy nostalgia, everyday ceremonies and home cooking.
ABOUT awkward party
70’s Aerobics Classes. 80’s Corporate Functions. 90’s House Warmings. Awkwardness - it’s hard to shake it off.
Just in time for the festivities, Goh x Cheong bring you AWKWARD PARTY. Join in the fun, where being awkward is 100% socially acceptable.
Goh x Cheong are socially awkward partners in crime exploring material histories, cultural kitsch and the art of people watching.
We then close our programme this year with an AWKWARD PARTY by Rachael and Sheryll. The duo will be creating an atmospheric installation responding to time and space indefinitely hurtling forward by loudly shutting it down with a party reminiscent of the uncomfortable family gatherings from our childhoods. The team will utilize bespoke furniture coverings, food display and old-school jams to nudge us through an oddly familiar domestic setting, to think about how the built environment can assist in cultivating home and place, as well as, how memorable childhood experiences in the public realm can be transformational in community building.
