'Kopi' shop 'Heap Seng Leong' has stood at this location in Lavender since 1974. With its 1950s kopitiam setting, with no false ceiling and a coin operated payphone, it as if time has stood still here, while everything else outside has moved on and been modernised. The artwork is an attempt to preserve this tiny little part of history in the visual memory of Singapore.
Artist Zoya Chaudhary has been interested in the visual documentation and celebration of the local character and flavour of places. There is a realization that this character is quickly being lost. Modernization tends to erode these wonderful flavours as global media sells templatized lifestlye dreams to people around the world.
