Title:
洗手 (Washing Hands) (2017)

Author:

Description:
This interactive installation reconstructs Singapore’s Chinese-Malay-Indian-Others racial model into hand-built soap dispensers in a public toilet. By displacing the manufactured-handmade boundary, the pedagogical intervention makes tangible the ethics of everyday encounters produced by socio-categorical constructs. The gestural prompt of cleansing with “dead skin” (soap) seeks to provoke dialogues of social responsibility, reconsidering our notions of dirt and complexities of social privilege.
