And the fluorescent glow
of neon lights hummed to
say that we are here.

We are open.

Selfportrait Installations

2022, Site specific installations
Through a daily practice of drawing self-portraits, I play with possibilities of self-presentation but also with the imperative to give countenance to identities that have long been excluded or marginalized. Growing up in a diaspora, I did not have many South-East Asian (and queer) role models presented to me through media, public life, culture or national history.

With the selfportrait installations I am showing myself publicly while at the same time emphasising the friction between myself and the architecture that surrounds me. Am I the outsider looking in or the insider looking out?
