Founded in 2004 by Yeo Shih Yun, INSTINC is an artist-run institution based in Singapore.

They continue to build upon regional and international ties through their long-running residency program. The vision for INSTINC is one of collaboration and connection, producing immersive large-scale projects that cross the genres of installation, new media, performance, painting and sculpture, partnering with brands such as Volvo and Guinness in the past.
“Our mission is to maintain artistic independence and foster community through experimental collaborations. Our vision has always been artist-focussed, and we aim to foster an environment where our artists may continue to inspire us and our community” - Yeo Shih Yun, Founder and Artistic Director of INSTINC
