Inspiration can come from the unlikeliest of places. Liz Atkin, a UK-based visual artist suffers from Compulsive Skin Picking (CSP) which she has to live with every day. When she redirected her hands to creating art, the movement struck a chord in her and has since become a key part of managing the illness.
As part of her advocacy for raising awareness and empowering those who face a similar situation, Liz presents a series of artworks entitled #CompulsiveCharcoal at the M1 Fringe Festival next year.
Joining her for the 13th edition of M1 Singapore’s Fringe Festival 2017 are several local and international performance, theatre, stage and visual artists. The theme for next year’s event is entitled Art & Skin – that delves into matters of identity, beauty, intimacy, sensitivity, pleasure, pain and shame.
The festival will take place from 5 to 14 January 2017. Tickets are available from $12 to $25 from Sistic. For more details click here.
