Academics May Ee Wong and Joanne Leow explore the evolution of SKL0’s street art as it shifts in context from the Singapore street in 2012, to her solo show “Limpeh” that focused on the figure of Singapore’s ‘founding father’ Lee Kuan Yew. How does her work mobilise the urban aesthetics of resistance in street art in the Singaporean context, and what does it resist? And how do these aesthetics change as her work becomes sited in other spaces? The conversation analyses multiple cases of Singaporean artistic cultural production as aesthetic works of resistance, what they resist, and speculate: what cultural resistance might look like in Singapore, and the urban possibilities they might create.
