The subject of sex work has been of interest to me. In a recent exhibition, I explored Geylang, a space for sex work in Singapore, as an object on its own. The exhibition ran for over 2 weeks at Post-Museum, an independent art space.

I am not Palestinian. My only link to Palestine is reading about the atrocities and suffering of its people, and especially its children. Nevertheless, I feel for the people of Palestine and often find myself worrying about the little girls living in Gaza, spending their childhood under the threat of bombs. I also worry that they might not have friends or family to guide, teach and help them grow.

My preoccupation with these young girls is largely due to my own childhood spent in isolation and solitude; my parents were divorcing and I had nobody to count on. I had questions to ask, but there was nobody to answer them. I was angry, but there was nobody to notice. Then I discovered poetry and art. I wish the heroines in my poems, surrounded and trapped by war, would learn to embrace art as their close friend.
