'Vertical Road to Singapore'

'Vertical Road to Singapore'

On the 'Tropical Lab' residency at Lasalle in Singapore in the summer of 2016 I visited cemeteries and columbarium of the different ethnic and religious groups resident in Singapore, documenting them in photographs.

I conducted a series of interviews -

When you come to the day you die, what will have been most important?

What ethnic and religious groups do you belong to? 

The resulting installation 'Vertical Road to Singapore' was exhibited at the ICA Singapore.
