Kialy Tihngang is a Glasgow-based interdisciplinary artist working in textiles, costume, photography and moving image. She is interested in the inability of the human hand to replicate the accuracy and cleanness of mechanised objects, the inability of mechanised objects to replicate the spontaneity and rawness of the human hand, and the tension elicited when those principles are tested.
Explorations of blackness, queerness, revisionist histories and imagined histories also inform her practice, which mixes hand craft techniques with digital drawing and making to augment analogue film and animation processes. With a heavy focus on colour, texture and material research, she produces objects and images that are all at once tactile, confusing, and enticing.
Kialy is part of AND’s XR Talent Development Residency Impossible Perspectives Lab.
