Vincent Leowthe milk factory

Vincent Leow
singapore (1961)

the milk factory , 2002

Leow’s herd of shaped iron cows elicits various and unusual reactions. The Milk Factory, created by the Singaporean artist, is directly inspired by the cloning of Dolly the sheep in the late 1990s: it raises questions about cloning, mass production, urbanization and the resulting alienation from nature. The cows are portrayed in similar positions: they can only be distinguished from each other through colors. The heads, tails, udders, bodies and legs are painted in a range of seven colors including yellow, black, blue, green, orange, red and pink, with different patterns on each cow.
This is a work that speaks to everyone; its immediacy and apparent simplicity contradict the seriousness of its deeper themes, shared – although realized through different means – by other sculptors of the Park.

Vincent Leow
singapore (1961)


Vincent Leow was born in 1961 in Singapore. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Sculpture) from the LASALLE College of Arts in 1987, followed by a Master of Fine Art from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 1991 and a Doctorate of Fine Arts from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Australia, in 2005. As one of the leading contemporary artists in the city-state of Singapore, he has been working in a wide range of media including painting, sculpture, performance, installation and computer-generated images. His work is full of humour, irony and highly efficient as a critique of reality and the psychological complexities. In 2007 Leow represented Singapore at the Biennale of Venice, at the 9th Indian Triennial of Contemporary Art, New Delhi, India (1997) and the first Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art, Brisbane, Australia (1993). Since the year 2000 he has also been a co-director of the most important artist space in town “Plastique Kinetic Worms” (PKW), an alternative space providing conditions for the most experimental activity in the art circle of the city as well as artists from abroad.
