Our Tragic Conclusion

Photo by Chen Yingxuan

The attainable – unrequited love, unachieved dreams, undermined effort, unavailable answers, unfulfillable longing. Redemption and meaning are within view, but out of reach. Together with the Kevin Tong, Eric Khoo, Haresh Sharma and Alfian Sa’at’s characters, we are suspended in confusion, oblivion, and relentless longing. We know what we do not want, but we do not know what we want; yet we want, we want desperately, we want everyday, and we want the unattainable, shrouded in perpetual discontent and disillusionment. This is the Singaporean tragedy.
