Arriving

The Blindness Of The Sea by Calvin Chow

Departing and Arriving is a sojourn to examine and trace our sense of belonging and identities amid current uncertainties. In the process, we dive into our pasts, histories and our belief systems, laying new claims on our cultural ancestry – some parts are discarded for us to arrive at who we are.

The journey is not without challenges as we revisit and redefine the grounds we stand for, but it is necessary if we want to understand ourselves—in Singapore, and globally.
