Sun In ‘D’E’M is a sustained inquiry into the co-figurehead of Singapore’s most notorious Pop Church, Sun Ho/Sun Geisha/Ho Yeow Sun. Where narratives are outfitted and speculations are abound, the church’s transpacific pop-evangelising project serves as a fertile directive for the creation of the symbol of ‘believe’ and ‘legitimacy’, which even eventual prosecution wasn’t able to shake. My interest in Sun stems from a desire to understand her becoming into such a figure through a Singaporean socio-cultural and aesthetic lens, the mural paintings my attempt to work through (visually) the multiple states of being of Sun.
