The Land of My Heart
2 in stock
The Land of My Heart is a new series of work by visual artist John Clang, resembling picture postcards addressed to Singapore ahead of her 50th birthday. By re-appropriating the icon of the Singapore Girl, he contemplates on vestiges of identity and personal memories encapsulated in nostalgic spaces of a rapidly evolving motherland, after having based his practice abroad for close to 16 years. Travel with Clang on his emotional journey and own a unique piece of his memory.
The founders of Platform – Tay Kay Chin, Darren Soh, Ernest Goh and Leonard Goh – initiated TWENTYFIFTEEN to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s independence. 20 photographers have been chosen to create 15 images each, with a folio published for each photographer in the months leading up to August 9, 2015.
