A Botanical and Wildlife Survey
Singapore Biennale 2013/2014 (If the World Change)
Peranakan Museum, Singapore

A Botanical and Wildlife Survey, and the video accompaniment Various Foliage reflects on the theme of the Biennale – If the World Change, and is a speculative imagining of lost landscapes and nature in Singapore. The ‘artefacts’ of porcelain plates with blue inked flora and fauna are observed and drawn by a group of 120 school students, and placed in a collection that evokes the idea of archaeological findings of an imagined future. Adding a lyrical narrative to the artefacts through a collation of forest sounds, sights and colours, Various Foliage is a homage to the natural landscapes that still exist today as much as it is a cautionary tale of what might be lost forever.
