THE TWO (2020)

The Two  is a series of black and white images using fictive play as a method of examining architecture and the environment. Following an anonymous duo as they explore analien landscape, the images cast Singapore as a surreal backdrop against whichthese beings step foot into and move in a curious wonderment. Devoid of colourand of recognizable faces, the series sets a focus on the shapes, lines, and texturesof the built environment, lensing the city as a simultaneously familiar and foreignobject in and of itself, a sentiment not uncommon considering the pace ofchange and the speculative potential of the directions the city-state is headedin. Central to the sequence is the way the duo manages to contain their ownprivate world through the intimacy of their companionship, a nod to everydayinstinctive gestures of creating belonging in space. 

Commissioned for the Singapore Pavilion at the 2021 Venice Architecture Biennale.
