In collaboration with OCBC, Galerie Steph presents three young Singapore artists, Angela Guo, Danielle Tay and Jonathan Tan, with their varied styles of artworks at OCBC Art Space, themed “In\Visible Structures”.

Among the three, the vivid artworks of Angela Guo left the deepest impression on me. Angela Guo showcases the fast disappearing kampong life through her poignant and poetic photographs that captured the tension brought by change and loss. Shot at dusk or dawn, the projection of light onto the antiquated structures magnifies the twilight years of a different mode of living in Singapore. Just for your information, the kampong captured in the series of photos still exists. Established in 1956, Kampong Buangkok is the last kampong on mainland Singapore located near Gerald Drive, housing less than 30 families. It would be interesting to visit the kampong itself too (before it vanishes)!
