Felicia Toh, Morphology of River Boundaries, digital print on cartridge paper, 2009.
Mediating around the conceptual elements of ‘site’, ‘situation’, and the ‘spectator’, this exhibition will present a discursive insight into how these elements are interplayed in relation to preserved narratives of Singapore history. Presented through mixed media and undertaken by four students from the Department of Architecture and University Scholars Programme, this exhibition aims to offer alternative articulations to seemingly “institutionalized” narratives by relying on fragmentary sources often neglected by orthodox historians.
