Apart is a performance for video which explains the act of losing conversation and the existence of her father. For the past 24 years, the artist had never interacted with her father or had the chance to exchange any conversations with one another. Throughout this performance piece, mark making of the blood line from tongue biting draws across the height of the artist resembles the journey of having silent conversations. This also conveys the desire to release the uncertainties of her own identity as a mixed Singaporean individual.
This work got me thinking about the relationships and conversations with people around me however there were no such communications involved with my father. I have longed to create conversations with him but there was no hope throughout all these years. I had the opportunity to be in performance art and shared my vulnerabilities as I pushed my body and emotions for the past weeks. Thus, I choose this personal concept of performance to be in tune both bodily and emotionally. Throughout the years of being silent and not having to communicate with him, this performance made me push the extent of documenting my emotions from a bodily point of view.
