Transfer Station is a boundary-pushing exhibition that aims to challenge the stigma surrounding death within Singapore Chinese culture, by drawing the relationship between the living and the dead through exploring the notion of funerary rituals to provide contemporary perspectives of viewing mortality among the millennials.
TRANSFER STATION is a portrayal of temporality, ambiguity and ephemerality of the everyday aspects of the Chinese Death Care process in Singapore. It depicts the passing of time when time has ended. It aims to blur the boundaries between the life and death, familiar and unfamiliar, known and the unknown, consciousness and subconsciousness by reshaping our perception that death is catastrophe, avoidable and even strange through the fashion lens. The project seeks to interrogate the liminal space as a useful lens to redefine superstitions and beliefs surrounding Chinese Death Care from a critical and contemporary blend of deeply rooted tradition and modern spectacle.
