Dates: 10 Feb 2012 - 11 Feb 2012
BUY OUT is a fundraiser for rainbowartsproject (RAP) in Supermarket 2012, a Stockholm independent art fair that showcases artists’ initiatives internationally.
RAP will be presenting in two major sections of the event:
1) A curated exhibition “Queer Creatures” introducing Singapore’s queer culture
2) Art & Activism Conference – Marla Bendini is invited to be part of the artists’ panel
Marla Bendini and Kelvin Atmadibrata will be selling their works to fund this project.

Constantly researching into the notion of gender and sexuality, Kelvin pays particular attention to masculine attributes, queer culture and erotica.

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.
