Good Dates Bad Dates
If the concept of romance and courtship has always befuddled you, HAFI’s solo art show is definitely up your alley. A Singapore based artist who has had her fair share of dates gone wrong turns her personal experiences into visual interpretations, through her quirky, cartoon-inspired illustrations alongside live visuals by fellow moving image artist Clara Lim, who goes by the pseudonym Clarrot.
