Tracks

Tracks is a cartographic representation of Singapore, formed using portraits of Marla Bendini in public spaces. These transgressive forms of self-representations not only chronicle the physical changes of gender transitioning, but also her artistic strategies in queer vs. mainstream negotiations within the country's public sphere. Mentored by Jason Wee (Grey Projects), Marla's installation weaves these tableaux into a visualisation of ownership through her tracks - a journey of self-discovery and rebirth, a 'tranimal' born out of alienation between the 'us' and the 'other'.
