The Ballad of the Skin of the Other takes inspiration from Oscar Wilde's novel, The Picture of Dorian Gray, and explores the navigation of gay identity in Singapore. The project highlights the toxic beauty standards, cloud of judgement and manufactured masculinity that shrouds the community, issues that are not often talked about.

For a community that is supposed to celebrate inclusivity, we practise exclusivity.
