Souvenirs of Sleep

  • Prize
    Bronze in Book/Fine Art
  • Photographer
    Ling Ang

First and foremost a filmmaker, Ang has been capturing her dreams through written records across the span of three years. In an endeavour to visualise her lucid subconscious, Ang combines the prose-like written records with photos she documented in that time. Familiar landmarks turn into the locations of a sci-fi fantasy. Recurring themes revolve around her childhood, hedonism and mortality. Through explorations of the weird, the audience is invited into a private world of universal vulnerabilities. An endeavour to understand the symbolism lurking under the surface of the psyche.
