Art of the week: ‘Boon Hock in 2014’ by John Clang (April 28)

‘Boon Hock in 2014’ by John Clang

Boon Hock, a Singaporean Chinese salary man in his mid-40s undergoing a midlife crisis, took daily selfies and photos of his immediate environment throughout the year of 2014.  As presented by New York-based photographer and visual artist John Clang (born Ang Choon Leng), the series brings attention to the individual’s relationship with the world, as well as the relationship between the artist and his subject. The series is Clang’s final project for the LASALLE College of the Arts’ Masters in Fine Arts programme. Kim Tay
