In ‘Frisky Sin’, Ketna has patched together seemingly random portraits of Singapore streets; a shophouse with a van selling ‘Friskies’ cat food’, a barber’s chair, part of a shop sign in Geylang (where the artist used to go to often to buy the most weird and wonderful coloured vinyl from an eccentric Chinese ‘uncle’ for upholstering her POP furniture; now sadly closed down), the backdoor of a labour camp dwelling and a tamilian scribed street column in Little India. None of these photos have people in it, and yet we know the space is ‘occupied’; be it the driver of the van or the barber behind the chair.
This Artwork pays homage to the animate and inanimate aspects of street culture; the ‘object’ and the ‘occupier’. Individually, nothing is glorious, but knitted together, our streets are frozen music!
Please note that each print has a surrounding 10cm white border.

Lives and Works: India & UK
Ketna Patel is a typical example of globalization. To date, she has lived in three different continents; Africa, Europe and Asia, each more than a decade. No wonder then that her work threads through many realms. Her personal experiences, cultural immigration, observations of popular and high culture, the juxtaposition of external, material worlds on top of inner bewilderment. To reflect the world, and her part in it, Ketna’s works are usually not minimal affairs.
