About This Book

Singapore is a city constantly under construction, both physically and ideologically. Construction sites everywhere spot the ubiquitous red and white barriers demarcating that area as a no-go zone. Each one has a sign proclaiming, 'This is not a safety barrier'. Taking a leaf from this absolute phrase, the anthology presents a collection of poems and photographs that question and challenge the barriers in our country - whether physical, ideological or imagined. It is an artistic social commentary of what is defined and/or undefined, with questions, comments, and explorations into the journey of how one reacts in response to rethinking monolithic national narratives.
