Tamotori Hime (The Pearl Diver)
This artwork combines multiple influences -- from Japanese folklore, the cultural history of Kampong Gelam and current events and transgressions. While The Pearl Diver is diving for betterment, around her is litter, debris and turtles caught in nets. This is the artist’s understanding of our entanglement with the world and our existence in the center of it all.
