Signs of a nest

This performance is part of Performing Home

17 NOVEMBER, 6.30PM - 10PM

The installation explores triggers of dwellings; unnoticed fragments. Signs of a nesting place, a home. ‘Home’ being a place of belonging, such as the Substation. How these ‘signs’ are becoming lost in their material sense, only to be held in that of the virtual, but resonate in the landscape of our bodily memory. The work couples film and live performance. The film composed of 250 photographic stills collected from several HDB (public housing) in Singapore.
