Inhabitations: NYC-SIN This exhibition installation was commissioned by the 2004 Singapore Arts Festival. The project transplants a New York apartment to a Singapore shophouse in transition and awaiting redevelopment. The project critiqued and made visible the anthropomorphic movements inscribed by an apartment plan of a typical postwar building that was transplanted from downtown Manhattan, and becomes, in effect, a changing room. It is a space which transforms the inhabitant of the Bleeker Street Apartment from daytime banker to night-time party-goer. Multiple feedback looks inform the space of the apartment. Over the course of the daily routine the body is reconfigured and changed according to one’s movement. The domestic carcass of another time and place is superimposed onto another to raise questions about the transportability of cultural and artistic practices.
