“ Objects are neither a flora nor a fauna. And yet they do indeed give the impression of proliferating vegetation...“ — Jean Baudrillard.
The artist views the conditions of the Singapore society as one that is enveloped within consumerism and unnaturalness. It is a society that has learnt to overcome its natural odds, and embraced capitalism as a form of survival. Under such conditions, as which can be seen as well in other societies (perhaps only not as fervently obvious), the artificial or the unnatural has become a part and parcel of everyday living here in Singapore. The collection thus can be seen in two manifolds; one as the artist’s own obsession to ‘capture’, ‘contain’ and ‘remember’ her unnatural environment as a result of having grown up in Singapore, but also as a constant reminder to pledge towards such unchangeable facts, to constantly look towards the artificial with unyielding patience and love.
