The eighth edition of the Happiness Private Limited show is a hybrid of William Sim’s trademark fantasia and the botanical world. The work is presented as a series of pseudo-botanical drawings on thirty six species of popular plants frequently encountered in Singapore. A playful study on symbiosis as each piece of work documents the anomalous alliance of an imagined facultative symbiont to its vascular plant host.
With strung up hammocks, aeries and shrub-houses, the partnership might seem more commensal than mutualistic at times. Only a bona fide botanist knows, for a plant to truly thrive, companionship and affection are as crucial as sunlight, water and nutrients.
