The Installation

installation-brightThe lighting of the Koboi Balik Lagi installation was completed just prior to the official opening of the Singapore Biennale on the 26th of October. Deference to the eventual reception and judgment of the work aside, I am deeply satisfied with its realization in this installation. I would like to thank all those who made this installation and the performance series possible, especially my photographers Durga Rajah and Zuraini Anuar who shot Kedualan Si Koboi and Koboi Balik Lagi respectively; my curators Nur Hanim Khairuddin and Louis Ho; my project manager Anisah Aidid; my printers Bill Boutin and Roy Ng of ABC Photo, my framer Michael Batty of Fine Art Framing Services, as well as Dave Lawr of Rockin Cowboy, Monet at Salon 6 Twelve and Ray at Durga Interiors. I would like to thank the Koboi’s inner circle of cowboys and girls on the long drive to market,  Roopesh Sitharan, Stuart Kennedy, Tara Rajah, Durga Rajah and Jane Frankish. Last but by no means least, I would like to thank my accomplice in red and Singapore Art Museums own in-house cowboy and  assistant curator John Tung.
