Rah Eleh: Atelier Advisor

March 13 – July 7, 2023

Initiated by former Executive Director/Curator Henry Heng Lu

Online, Etsy. 

Atelier Advisor is a fictional web art project that is presented in the format of an Etsy shop. Inspired by Rah’s character work, the shop offers a variety of playful and cheeky gifts. Objects include a magic 8 ball that shares the namesake of the gift shop, along with three glass blown White Tears, Periphery Art book and many others. 

In addition to the web project, some of the items are available at Centre A’s gallery for the duration of the online performance.
