Title

Min Thein Sung

Description

Since 2014, Min Thein Sung has been collecting historical, sociological, and material data for the project Mr Tailor had a dream last night: a soft-sculpture installation made of raw linen fabrics that recreates a small tailor shop, a space for craftsmanship that is still common in Myanmar but fast-dwindling in Singapore. Addressing the alienation of the consumer from the garment-maker and the resilience of this kind of handicraft in the face of today’s industrial mass production, the artist intends to engage with local taylors and with the tools of the trade in order to create a new sculptural piece.
