Few places see as much collective creation of memories as the humble school grounds. The recollection of our time spent in the education system is personal but yet communal; consisting of varying experiences as we operate under the encompassing objective of achieving excellence.
This work explores the school environment as a catalyst for reminiscence. It recalls a simpler time when childish daydreams cushion the monotony of classroom routines. Drawing from my recollections of experiences during my school days and my work as a teacher, this work presents the contradictory carefree nature of the child against the obsession for conformity.

Shen Jiaqi is an Fine Arts practitioner and Educator living and working in Singapore.
Inspired from my surrounding urban environments of Singapore, my works revolve around the various unique social issues I experience and personally encounter. Drawing from my experiences as an millennial, artist, and art educator, my inspirations stem from systematic restrains, societal norms, and cultural expectations. Aesthetically inspired by scenes from everyday life and the urban environment, I seek to start dialogues and elevate awareness about our shared but unsaid experiences as a society.
