Cardboard Lamps & Adequate Images is an exhibition of seven lamps made out of cardboard, simple construction techniques, and tiny printed images taken with the artist’s phone. The works are acompanied by an instruction manual on how to build them. The project reflects on various personal experiences of living in Singapore, graduating from art school, getting a job, moving house and more recently, staying home during the pandemic. Amongst other things, it asks what is the point of art, what do we build, and what images do we carry with us into the end of the world?
