Kuala Lumpur-based conceptual artist Dhavinder Singh believes a space collects memories and character alongside the people in that neighbourhood, crystalising into something ephemeral that cannot be transferred by merely slapping on its name, and likeness to a new location.

His latest series, Recollectus, is inspired by his reluctant departure from his studio, located in the soon-to-be-demolished Razak Mansion, a 50-year-old public housing project, nestled near the old Royal Malaysian Air Force base in Sungai Besi, on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur.
