Collaborative Industry Project: Responding to Danh Vo’s Work at Rooftop Studios

Untitled, 2017​

Mixed Media

Dimension: Varying sizes

Kim Hyesu, Lee Ju-Lyn, Nur Izzati Binte Haji Muhammad Faisal, Yunita Rebekah Winata Chandra

Referring to Danh Vo’s quiet, bold style and his artistic interest in the taking apart and reassembling of identities and cultures, inspired by life experiences and readymade objects, four fine art students present ideas on their identities and cultural background, as represented by collages of four distinct colours: copper, white, black, and brown.


The Copper – Hyesu combines faded signages from her home country to trace her childhood memories up to the current point of being in Singapore.


The White – By origami-letter-folding over 300 stories she authored, Ju-Lyn queries the superficiality of perceived personal and Singaporean identity.


The Black – Through intimate images, Izzati challenges the geographical definitions of identity by presenting personal moments and connections that span across physical distances.


The Brown – The strangely familiar images of Pulau Mutiara and Tidore from the discontinued 1000 rupiah bill express Yunita's disconnectedness with her national cultural identity.
