2018/ March—Open House! Emerald Hill.

Commissioned by OpenHouse Singapore as part of an extensive survey of Colonial Orchard Road, a Raffles Grill was made of metal in Bandung. As I was already researching Javanese cooking, I wanted a performance that revive rowdy street fare of Java that also make a monument "useful" as it is not as revered in Indonesia.

It was also a chance to rehang the Seamstress Raffles in a the manner of ropes and hanging from the ceiling.
