Spreading positivity across the globe. Starting from Venice Biennale to Edinburgh Fringe Festival and finally ending off with Singapore’s art hot pot Gillman Barracks, I brought memory sharing to these different cities. Sad memories are released from the owners and stay in the pocket, while happy memories travel to strangers’ pockets to stay in the form of smiles on their faces.
Share a memory in exchange for a happy memory.
My most memorable ones? Kids x2, Swimming with dolphins

An open invite to people to share their stories of home and their background and experiences. A personal conversation to connect in a fast paced and diverse city, an attempt to break barriers and foster understanding amidst nationalist and anti-immigrants sentiments.
Performed at Battersea Arts Centre as part of Homegrown festival, 8 April 2017.
Sally carried the memories of refugees and volunteers at camps. This performance in particular was a social experiment to see the response of people in lieu of growing political tensions and xenophobia.

“If all the paintings in this room were sold, people wouldn’t be homeless.”
A group of protestors infiltrated Royal Albert Hall and occupied the posh VIP room. Newspaper articles of various social and political issues like Trump’s muslim ban and infiltration plans scatter the floor. The audience are invited to engage in a meaningful conversation on socio-political issues they are passionate about.
