Genevieve Leong is an aspiring artist in her final year at the NTU School of Art, Design and Media where she studies Photography. Under the guidance of mentor Pann Lim, the TAP apprentice is now showing off her Coming Home project at the Noise TAP Exhibition at 8Q.
Genevieve talks us through her project: “I have never quite understood what the course of time would entail. Two people, two lives, apart but always a part of one another. Grandma and Grandpa got married in March 1962. They have both forgotten the exact date of their wedding. In 1971, after the birth of their third child, things began to take a turn. Habits and differences started to get in the way. Yet for the sake of family, they were never officially separated. Soon enough, when their children had their own families, they felt that they could not live together any longer. Come Home is my attempt in restoring and safeguarding whatever that may have remained in a relationship that has long faded away.”
Noise Singapore 2014 – The Apprenticeship Programme (TAP) Exhibition runs until 7 September at SAM at 8Q (8 Queen Street). Admission is free.
