10am-7pm

Perfect Stranger is a narrative time capsule spanning a vast sea of paper washed in a gradient of words and colour. Each sheet emits a phosphorescence arising from a synthesis of shades unique to, and reflective of its script.

 

This verbose body of work stems from a distilled collection of texts drawn from a daily Q&A project with a stranger, an Israeli psychologist Zehavit Efrati living in Singapore, in 2016. Every day over the course of a year, the psychologist asked the artist a question, and the artist responded. This exchange between two women grew into an intimate documentary of time, space, and self.

 

Static yet glimmering, the installation is visually emblematic of the irony and balance in binaries and dualities – between the monumental and mundane, stillness and change, materiality and ephemerality, was and is, hello and goodbye.
