Wu Xiao Kang, though Singaporean, has never been shown in Singapore before, and it is not without its reasons. The collective has been turned down several times in their proposal to show Wu Xiao Kang's work. Disappointed and at the verge of giving up, the collective stopped pushing his work in mid 2006. One of the most disturbing comment we had from a Singapore curator was , which the collective still remembers by word , " he is such a loser ". Thus the collective made up their mind that Singapore would never be ready to see his work.
