Ang Song Nian

Hanging Heavy On My Eyes

Singapore, 2016

Self-published

Hardcover Hanging Heavy On My Eyes looks at the recurring situation in Singapore and its region of prolonged haze spells due to increased forest fires in neighbouring Indonesia contributing to severe air pollution conditions. Based on the artist’s collection of average recordings data of the particulate matter 2.5 (PM2.5), the exhibition recalls the artist’s experience with the discomfort and unease of reduced and affected visibility – a result of conditions in human’s continuous bid to control, intervene and manipulate landscapes and environment aligned to narrow-minded agendas.
