Along the common corridors of the humble HDB, potted plants dot the space like sporadic patterns. A common sight of slippers strewn astray in front of the many doors, a baby’s cry, the jingle of a key sounds before gates are swung open. The sights and sounds of this open space is broken when a familiar face steps out of one of the many units that make up that blocks of flats. A simple hello or a warm embrace, a cold shoulder or a hurried scatter, these make up the many on goings that happen on a daily basis. These are the parameters of the various relationships that are built over time, the foundation of a community spirit that is forged through the common spaces found in residential area.
We each have stories to share from our memories. Our personal journey that revolves around the common corridor that makes us unique and different from one another. It could be about that grandma from two doors down, or the little boy three floors up, or the auntie next door, these are the stories we remember with fondness that establishes my involvement as part of the community.
We see through the corridor with different eyes and different memories. We see through the corridor with the same experience of sharing this collection of stories.
Seeing Through The Corridor will open it’s doors to everyone from the 12th to the 14th of June at the National Museum of Singapore. Tickets on sale now, so grab them today!
