EUROPEAN TOURIST

European Tourist consists of several photographic works documenting
ideas around performance, protest and the post colonial condition. The
works also attempt to analyse the space where conflicting ideologoical
standpoints meet. It is made up of work titled Waving At and Distribution
Bangkok
.

 

Waving At - is a series of photographs produced in Singapore. The work
consists of documentation of a series of live actions or confrontations of
specific monuments or buildings such as a statue of British Colonial Official
Sir. Thomas Stamford Raffles, a Catholic Church, City Hall, a Buddhist and
Hindu Temple.

.

Distribution Bangkok - This work is a documentation of a live event where by
I travelled to Bangkok and tried to engage with an audience directly through
the distribution of a printed document. The printed document was produced in Singapore and was an attempt to condense my artistic convictions into
an everyday A4 leaflet. The work references the approach taken by political,
religious or commercial enterprise.
