Comet i: i’ll Drift on My Hilltop and You Can Rest on Yours reflects on the theme of insularity and continentally. There is a desire to demarcate territories, an urgency to establish a sense of place for both the visitor and the local. O was interested in the tensions that arise when the local leaves their own country to live somewhere else and after a while return. The native falls into the position of an outsider. A sense of deep displacement occurs for the one who has left, a sense of discomfort and uncanniness takes over. Home is no longer home; one becomes a stranger in his or her own land.

Lives and Works: Singapore and San Francisco
Soph O is a Singaporean visual artist who collects and draws imagery that borders between the mundane and extraordinary. Her practice revolves around capturing transient moments and everyday stories, focusing on the notion of place and landscape, narration and abstraction which are translated through repetition, reiteration and recurrence onto drawings, paintings, installations and murals.
Soph holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Elam School of Fine Arts in New Zealand (2010). She has shown her works at numerous local and international exhibitions, including “Logic Chromatic” (2018) solo exhibition at UltraSuperNew, Singapore, “Naiise UK Pop-Up Store” (2017) group exhibition at The Old Truman Brewery London, “PPC | 珍珠坊: A Public Living Room” (2016) at People’s Park Complex as part of SG Artweek, “Superpsychics”(2013) collective pop-up exhibition at Future Perfect gallery Singapore, “Singapore Unintentional Islander” (2014) solo exhibition at Twenty-Two Singapore, “Exposition Collective 2014” in Liège, Belgium, and “Wonder Women” (2010) at PostMuseum Singapore. Her most recent commissions have included Facebook Artist-in-Residency program in Singapore (2018), SODO Track mural festival in Downtown Seattle (2018), Bright Nights Sentosa (2017), Kilo Lounge (2016), Sundaram Tagore Gallery (2016), Noise Singapore and the Singapore Ministry of Foreign Affairs in partnership with the Delhi Metro Project (2017) for large-scale murals and installations in Singapore and India.
