Garden State Palimpsest (2017)
|An installation based on the artist’s interviews with residents of kampungs that no longer exist in Singapore. Each object is an attempt at recreating the environments that marked the interviewees’ lives, serving as documentation of a lost landscape that now seems mythical in heavily urbanised Singapore. The images are abstract and hazy, and the stones fragmented – they are only an approximation of a space that once existed, refracted through memories. |
