Suzann Victor’s (b. 1959, Singapore) work Waiting Room conjures up ideas of enclosure and theatricality. Consisted with previous works, her installation uses the body as a frame of reference. The walls are painted blood-red, over which delicate glass tears are attached in clusters. Bombarding the senses, the overall effect is disorientating, the space resembling a cavernous interior body while the tears are like escaping fluids.
