Abstract: We Singaporeans love our local fare and I am no exception. Food is almost synonymous with life and has always been an important part of cultural– not only my personal – heritage. My great-grandparents operated a kedai kopi in a small kampong in Malaysia, and my grandparents sold arguably the best Hainanese chicken rice at Adam Road up till the 1990s. Jia (eat in Hainanese and Home in Mandarin) is an installation in a conscious attempt to reconnect with an important part of my family history I never really knew – before it disappears, through the food that I grew up eating. As the saying often goes, you are what you eat; I invite the viewer to join me in my contemplation of who I am and where I come from.
