    NPE Art Residency: Folds of Mind

    Ottie and I visited the opening show of two new residents at NPE Art Residency last month. I heard about this art residency sometime in 2015 and since then have always been fascinated by how Daryl Goh manages to manoeuvre his extensive network in order to support the local arts scene through such initiatives… of course it being a free three-month residency, vacancies are only available from 2019 onwards last I heard. This time, it looks like Daryl brought this idea to another level by opening up a gallery to show for these residencies, and I was happy to be invited to its first gallery opening. I’m very excited to see…

A cat nap later, we managed to muster the energy to follow Kooling, our host and guide for our trip, to some interesting places. Brunch at Uncle Joe’s Mess Hall. Such a pretty place for food and also to get a haircut! We wandered on downtown and I couldn’t help but linger on some colourful walls: Ottie and Kooling posing while I tested the shot. The day called for light makeup, as I didn’t want to…
