OH! Potong Pasir


Here are the departed spaces – from quarry to pond to garden to who knows what. Here is the smell of new paint mixed with nostalgia. New paths and old ways. Sheltered walkways and ski-slope roofs. People make do; we always do.
14 artists exhume these histories, leading you from the bridge with the best view, to 4 HDBs, a black and white colonial, and ending in Bidadari, the former cemetery.

Best known as Singapore's longest-held opposition ward, Potong Pasir's landscape has been subject to numerous changes over the past century. In a neighbourhood undergoing intense construction and upgrading, the walk drew parallels between its urban and political transitions.
