Engaging The Vitrine as a site imbricated with complex histories and practices of display, Fyerool Darma complicates our understanding of Telok Blangah, through objects found or acquired, deconstructed and reoriented by the artist and his collaborators. These objects, added one at a time with a monthly cadence, are registers of physical surplus of archives, narratives, and transactional systems that are constantly being managed, (re)written, and (re)produced. The installation encapsulates an object-based index of the area wherein the items slide like cursors along intricate trajectories and the realms of the physical and digital, the archive and the display, are merged.
