TRANSIT focuses on an existing transitional space in Waterloo Centre - the void deck. Void decks are multi-purpose, able to host various events, yet often remaining a dead space that we simply past through. In this overlooked space, the artist sees a form of threshold or purgatory. The installation created an in-between space within an in-between space, using a zone of string curtains that is mobile and porous. The intervention heightens the viewer's spatial sensitivity to the architecture of the void deck, and how the space can be flexible depending on the needs of its users.
Rifqi Amirul Rosli is an artist in Singapore whose works often deals with the in-between of things: states of suspension, transition, liminality. He probes into the construction of personal boundaries and speculative states that defines one’s purpose and sentimentality towards a place. He describes the personal connection one has to a physical, or an imagined place, which may not necessarily be a typical home, but could relate to a sense of familiarity, a tradition or a regular activity that becomes a part of one’s identity.
