Lives and Works: Singapore
Angela Guo (b.1989, Singapore) is a multidiscplinary artist who graduated from LASALLE College of the Arts in 2013. Her work focuses on the exploration of perceptual conundrums through reinterpretation of everyday environment. By creating obscure visual experiences, she seeks to prompt viewer's self-awareness about the phenomenology of perception.
"A River Runs Through It":
"The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs." Norman Maclean.
In 2011, 400 makeshift homes located along the Siem Reap riverbank were relocated as part of a beautification and cleanup project by the government. The families living in homes perched precariously on the banks of the Siem Reap were evicted to a relocation site 40 kilometers away from the central town of Siem Reap as the riverbank suffered from flooding due to waste blockage. Following the lives of these villages, 'A River Runs Through It' is a project about the displacement of these villages and imagining what the lives of these villages might have been if they were still living by the riverbank.
