Visual artist, Kray Chen, presents
Visual artist, Kray Chen, presents a new project that turns a playful eye on the rituals of an average Singaporean Chinese wedding, in a quest to understand the anxieties and behaviours associated with weddings today. Commonly viewed as a rite of passage, weddings are bound up in cultural, social, and collective expectations. But what happens when the conditions surrounding a traditional wedding are given a twist?
This tongue-in-cheek look at wedding rituals upends tradition and cultural clichés in its ‘rehearsal’ for the actual event. In the process of examining this familiar and commonplace ceremony, the work challenges the ways we imbue social practices in our culture, enabling us to reflect on, poke fun of, and appreciate our own habits and behaviour.
