Communal parks are spaces of quiet potential, charged with metaphorical and symbolic meanings. In Singapore, where space is limited, parks such as Chinese Garden serve as a sanctuary for various communities to enjoy each others' company. Every Sunday, recreational activities such as picnics by the lake and cricket matches on the expansive fields transform this otherwise idyllic space into a unique microcosm.

Referencing the hit 90s Malay pop song, Memori Daun Pisang (Memories of Banana Leaf), Next Sunday intends to elicit this peculiar yet romanticised notion of the park as both a site of longing and belonging. This exhibition will include new works that draw from the landscape of the park featuring paintings, sculptures, and photographic documentations.
