Barricade @ White Box

With a yellow background and traffic cones on its poster, "Barricade" clearly states its intent to comment on the upcoming general elections.  Cynical laughter-inducing pieces fill the space - a brilliant round ping-pong table, washed-up flags of a political party, and Yee I-Lann's commemorative pieces on an independence fantasy.

Chong Kim Chiew's brick wall made of "newspapier-mâché", poses a serious and potent critique about political bias in the local media.  It is a reminder that the power of media should not be underestimated, and politicians should never be allowed to meddle with it.
