Everyone’s A Critic - Saffron Songs

Rajinder Singh, Artist

Everyone’s A Critic - Saffron Songs

For his exhibition Saffron Songs, artist Rajinder Singh draws on the "sonic qualities" of a specially commissioned Punjabi folk song to then inspire his paintings. The works pay tribute to his late grandfather, and reclaim stories both personal and political about his existence amidst the conflict and challenges of the colonial period in Malaya. We speak with Rajinder to understand how sound, memories, and art come together in this collection.
