Marla Bendini lives and works in Singapore. Born Ong Boon Kok, Bendini Junior in 1986, “Marla Bendini” was created in 2007, an ongoing process of the identity as the “art form”. Her first self-titled exhibition “Marla.” brought her to Pattaya, Thailand in 2008. Sponsored by Fridae.com, Asia’s largest LGBT portal, she presented Conversations Between Father and Son (2010), a multimedia installation performance at The Substation Gallery, Singapore. The artist’s multi-displinary and highly personal works have become her signature, expressing ideas about gender binaries and the dysfunction of social and cultural structures, particularly with her personal physical body as an articulation tool.
