My Grandfather's Road is a multi-disciplinary project of stories about growing up at Neo Pee Teck Lane, a side road in Pasir Panjang, named after the artist’s grandfather. Recollecting his memories and reconnecting with these stories, the project has been published in a book, presented on stage, exhibited as a photography installation and now, a multi-media exhibition.
My Grandfather’s Road – Rabbit Heart, Dragon Soul is a visual exposition of the stories through old family photographs, documents, artefacts, video documentaion of the previous stage versions and a new photo book set. There will be readings in English and Cantonese of excerpts from the original book, performance scripts, new writings and a live music listening session of analogue songs for the digital generation, featuring music and songs released up to 1973, the year the artist moved out from his grandfather’s road.
Neo Kim Seng was born in January 1964, almost the end of the Year of the Rabbit in the Lunar calendar, just before the entry of the Dragon. This exhibition tells Kim Seng’s stories, a Rabbit who has grown to adopt the spirit of the Dragon, traversing time and space.
