Summary of project:

‘Points of Departure’ presents multi-layered narratives of coastal and island life of Singapore that weave the past and the present through memories, images and words by visual artist, Juria Toramae.

As an exploration of notion of individual and collective remembrance of an island nation, this reflective piece of work that was presented as part of SG50 celebrations culminates in at a very significant moment of Singapore’s history.’
