This is a mundane, ordinary scene of a corner in Tekka Market, Little India; with a little Taoist shrine in the background, people of different ethnicities hang out together. As an expat living in Singapore, the artist experiences this kind of cultural juxtaposition on a daily basis. In its contrast lies the essence of this composition, where each element brings its unique cultural texture, providing a sense of balance and connection.
Artist Zoya Chaudhary has been interested in the visual documentation and celebration of the local character and flavour of places. There is a realisation that this character is quickly being lost. Modernisation tends to erode these wonderful flavours as global media sells templatised lifestyle dreams to people around the world.
