Tenant

In Singapore, the standard notion of family is recognised as the typical nuclear family with a Father, Mother, Child structure. However, the existence and unusual relationship dynamics amongst atypical families are not often known as less emphasis is given to these families in our social institutions. Belonging to an atypical family myself, my work seeks to study the relationship between my Father and I by charting its complex dynamics via a series of objects that offer a multiplicity of narratives, meanings and contradictions within a space structure that embodies the emotional and physical proximity between us.

Stories from Atuk

My grandfather and I are both huge fans of P.Ramlee films. When I was little, my family used to watch the films together with my grandfather in the living room of his apartment. Very often he would document and review the films creating a collection of books titled Buku Sinaran. Weaving in his family narratives into the film reviews, the result is a poetic family archive that I used as the foundation of this project. Stories from Atuk is a re-enactment of this experiential journey, re-archiving into a series of publications consisting of illustrations, collage and family recollections.
