5. I Walked From The South To The North (2018)
Embodying broad themes of history and memory, Amanda Heng (b. 1951) is a pioneer of Singaporean contemporary art who explores social issues of the nation’s fast-changing and multicultural society. This work is created based on Let’s Walk, a series of walking performances that carry a simultaneous sense of peaceful contemplation and potent provocation. In particular, Let’s Walk considers the parallel symptoms of Asia’s financial crisis and the booming beauty business in the 1990s, reflecting on the lack of progress for women in society. Heng is one of the founding members of art collective The Artist’s Village in 1988, and is the recipient of 2001 Cultural Medallion.
