How Loneliness Goes is a solo exhibition by Nguan. How Loneliness Goes is about those of us who abide in the city. The photographs in the series employ Singapore’s distinct vernacular architecture as both scenery and supporting cast for a lyrical and ambivalent portrayal of urban isolation. Whether they are depicted as being on their own or in the middle of a teeming crowd, the protagonists in the images appear detached and bereft – a part of the living, yet apart from it.The work functions as an allegory for the impossibility of connection in modern life. The pictures also affirm the tenuous margins that divide maturity or worldliness from a sort of brokenness, and melancholy from a kind of peace. How Loneliness Goes was first presented as a highlight of the 2015 M1 Singapore Fringe Festival. It returns for a special engagement at FOST Gallery, where several new images will be on show.
