Literary Pioneer Exhibition

A website showcasing the lives and works of Tamil writers P. Krishnan, Rama Kannabiran and Singai Ma Illangkannan.

Usually held at the Arts House as part of the Singapore Writers Festival, the 2020 edition of the Literary Pioneer exhibition was moved online due to the global pandemic. The design creates three distinct ’rooms’ – the radio studio, the five-foot-way, the military barracks – that are significant to the writers, telling their stories through a sense of place and a series of objects.

Designed with Laura Miotto and Ramesh Krishnan. Writing and research by Harini V, Ashwini Selvaraj and Bharathi Moorthiappan. Web development by Mao Yuncheng. 2020.
