Singapore has been undergoing urban development since the 1960s. The relentless changes that come with rapid nation-building and urban development have forced us to constantly adapt to new environments. What may be left of spaces that have been developed over time are only fragmented memories and incomplete photo documentation. Singapore artists Deanna Ng and Chua Chye Teck attempt to capture these fleeting landscapes by revisiting places from their memories and documenting the process of development over long stretches of time. Through their individual projects, they examine the high level of adaptability that most individuals in Singapore possess, the way the meaning of a place changes frequently in an urban city like Singapore, and how spaces are often rendered into a state of being brand new again, awaiting the creation of a new meaning in the next redevelopment.
