1. Singapore – Social conditions – Poetry 2. Crayon drawing – Singapore 3. Singapore – In art “Most things in the world around us have poems hidden in them waiting to be revealed if we have the will to pay attention and see them with the heart.” — Anne Lee Tzu Pheng With crayons and stained paper, artist Ho Chee Lick wanders around neighbourhoods in Singapore observing, perceiving, looking for that “something”: quiet and unremarkable objects and scenes of basic everyday life. One day some of his drawings came into the hands of poet Anne Lee Tzu Pheng who rediscovers the quiet beauty of these captured moments and explores their story with her words. Common Life is a visual and poetic journey into territories the mind often finds too familiar to excite feelings or thoughts.
