Synopsis:

Commonly viewed as a rite of passage, weddings are bound up in cultural, social, and collective expectations. What happens when conditions surrounding a traditional wedding are given a twist?

Visual artist and 2018 Young Artist Award recipient Kray Chen presents a new project that turns a playful eye on the rituals of an average Singaporean Chinese wedding, shedding light on the anxieties and behaviours associated with weddings today.
