Hong Sek Chern
CSG124 Landscape at Rochor (Before Demolition) , 2013

Ink on Paper
135 x 205cm


The iconic Rochor Centre was one of Singapore’s most memorable landmarks. Brightly colored in hues of pink, blue and green, the colored housing flats were commissioned to be demolished in 2011 to make way for the new North-South Highway. Hong Sek Chern commemorates the housing area that held a place in so many Singaporean hearts, bringing together wildly-angled architectural snapshots of the building and using muted colors to depict the buildings in their fading form as they transition into the debris of progress. Detailing the markets that lined the bottom of the centre and numerous houses to highlight the sheer numbers the compound once held, the artist lends her distinctive style to both celebrate and reminiscence upon a cherished memory of old Singapore.
