Belonging is inspired by anxiety and the feeling of inadequacy of existing or moving between different spaces. One may feel like an outsider at times, on the outside looking in; observing but never partaking in the activities of their surroundings for fear of judgement or ridicule.


In this series, I attempt to visualise the hopes and fears of navigating such spaces, with the longing for portals both physical and metaphorical

to be open and welcoming to all.


Belonging II was exhibited in The Uncanned Project at Grids & Circles Cafe, Singapore in 2019
