prep-room | BUAYA: The Making of a Non-Myth
Buaya: The Making of a Non-Myth is an evolving body of works around ideas on the saltwater crocodile in Singapore. It holds a space that welcomes the working presentations of parallel research projects and interpretations done by professionals in the fields of natural history, arts, cultural studies as well as organising projects done by students from the NUS.
This edition of Buaya continues Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum conservator Kate Pocklington's ongoing research around present and historic records of this reptile's population and circulation in the human habitat of Singapore. Simultaneous to these works-in-progress by Kate Pocklington in the prep-room are contributions by museum interns as well as references to the work of artist Lucy Davis.
