‘Wayside Trees’ is a collection of Trees planted between 2018 and 2021 on roadsides in Singapore as a by-product of the construction of new major transport infrastructures. The collection is part of a broader visual anthology, investigating the maintenance of a national narrative.
Marvin Tang (b. 1989, Singapore) harnesses photography, moving image, and object-based installations to visualise social phenomena that simmer under, beyond, and in spite of government infrastructures and systems of control. His works often undermine the conventional representations of nature and question the linearity of historical narratives.
