The Rise And Fall Of 1°17′N 103°50′E, 1°5′0″S 75°55′0″W–A Circular Journey
(Singapore Biennale 2013)
“Sai has travelled to South America — Ecuador to be exact, which is situated exactly at the opposite end of the equator from where our sunny island is. In his two-channel video installation, The Rise And Fall Of 1°17′N 103°50′E, 1°5′0″S 75°55′0″W – A Circular Journey, Sai documented the sunset and sunrise in Singapore and Yasuni National Park in Ecuador.
Audiences will get to experience images of Singapore and Yasuni National Park, heightening awareness of the shared and differing historical, cultural and political contexts that have shaped these two places, including the environmental issues that continue to challenge their survival.”
