Accelerated Intimacy considers questions of site, memory and staging in relation to time. A parallel to her previous methods of compositing and reconstructing documented images; Choo re-presents fragments through time, reconstructing a potential narrative surrounding each character .Rather than offering any kind of resolution to histories of the characters and site, Accelerated Intimacy is a culmination of carefully constructed coincidences that are unfinished and ongoing; revealing and establishing complex relations with each reading.

Sarah Choo Jing (b. 1990, Singapore) is known for her interdisciplinary approach to photography, video and installation. Her work depicts identifiable moments and characters within contemporary urban society suggesting a plethora of private and often solitary narratives. The artist is concerned with the gaze of the flaneur, voyeurism and the uncanny. Choo lives and works in Singapore.
