While his residency in a rapidly transforming city like Frankfurt, Seah has focused on the structures of mobilty, habitat and facade. His painted 'Quilts' appear like amorph sculptures that can be moved, placed and activated into a proper shelter through the visitor's action.
-- Since ancient times migration is the norm, either active or forced. In order to survive, men have learned to adapt to new environments, building up habitat with limited resources, either in mobile or pemanent settings. It is animacy, it is by instincts. Soon the accumulation of capital has enabled certain people to highlight their status and wealth by owning housing properties. As an artist I have experienced migration while a limited period of time. And I shall move on. Like an actor, I have tried to fit in a new life and to begin to build my habitat -- Zelin Seah, Dec 2017, Frankfurt.
