Kialy Tihngang

My name is Kialy Tihngang, and I am a Glasgow-based interdisciplinary artist working in textiles and the moving image. I am 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 played with.

I use humour to highlight this tension, alongside other ways in we as humans manage to slowly desecrate our world. My practice 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, I produce moving images that are all at once tactile, repellent, confusing, and enticing
