Sentimentality in Deterioration
100 x 250 cm
Sentimentality in Deterioration depicts attachment towards a collapsing world. Incongruent structures merge to form one disorienting scene, emanating an odd balance of appreciation and despair. Relics symbolise a past memorialised, while the forgotten alleys of Singapore speak of tattered safe havens.
By idealising a desolate world, the work invites one to indulge in the thought that this decaying world is still beautiful.
