Blue Canvas Walls (2016)


Osman practices socially engaged art, where the creation involves community stakeholders.

He went door to door, trying to convince residents to let him paint the pattern of blue tarpaulin in their flats. The process of negotiation turned upgrading from something that is to be actively ignored and kept outside the home, into a process that was social, vulnerable and even humorous.

Fractal Dunes (2016)


Potong means cut, Pasir means sand. The artist draws inspiration of Potong Pasir’s history as a sand quarry and presents two kinetic, constantly moving, sandscapes. One is driven by a grid of mini-fans, the other by a water feature simulating the flow of the Kallang River.

One to None Exchange (2016)


A book, a chair, a hanger… Our personal belongings are extensions of ourselves and say something about our taste, lifestyle, education and beliefs. What happens when the artist removes an everyday object from its original context into another home? Here, the artist uncovers the personal stories of homeowners.

Let Sounds Go Wherever They Will Go (2016)


By surreptitiously inserting hidden cameras into domestic objects, the artist complicates power relations – the observer and observed overlap.

Consigned (2016)


What does it mean to reproduce an object or place that has been destroyed?

The artist recreated Chiam See Tong’s iconic table from Blk 108’s Meet the People Session, which many Potong Pasir residents have real memories of. Yet, the artist also recreated Alkaff Gardens in miniature, a bite sized souvenir to be consumed in SG50’s wake of nostalgia that most of us have no relationship with. How do we treat memory in Singapore? Do we commercialise it till nostalgia becomes meaningless souvenirs?
Artist:
