    So is this YOUR sincere apology then?
    Dear RSU, I shared that to make a point that I don't think I will ever understand. I have since deleted because I think it will be taken wrongly. If it is not too much to ask, would appreciate if you can remove it as well.

    How ****ing pretentious can you get?

    Viewing the photos again, one sees them as a bunch of nicely taken photos, but when the context is changed, frankly they're good, but quite unremarkable.

    haha, I sincerely hope they are reading it themselves and what they finally decide is between them. Fair enough?

    I have edited my post to match yours. But my points of contention remain. Best of luck, dude.

    Frankly *shrug* probably. Still right now THEY'RE the ones getting all the attention, and not their supposed cause. I guess the three photographers must be proud of themselves on making use of the disadvantaged. Just leaves a horribly bad taste in the mouth.

    Walao... riding on double waves of bad publicity. But hope the waves wash away their hopes of exhibiting too.

    actually, let's give them some bad publicity .... I won't mind seeing the 3 never getting another job in photograhy ever again in their natural life.

    The issue of lying and playing with emotions are greater than the issue of whether it's really how people with mental illness schizophrenia views the world and acts.

    he wrote 'used', I think he meant that all this big hooha about this fake art, is all part of what the 'artists' wanted.....to get attention,......

    Singapore art has become so low????? I feel sad, hope that the art schools use this as an example for the current crop of art students.......there are even rules for ads that they must represent the truth about the product.

    I don't think you're too far off the mark. The xiaokang story appeared earlier in the year and died not too long after that. Yet there was effort in druming up interest recently with the petition and all. Now there's two ST articles about it on two seperate days just when the exhibition is about to open. Something smells if you ask me.

    actually some artists do resort to controversy to promote their works.

    LOL! I think badly of ST but not that bad!

    BTW, for those that are upset at this hoax, there is a possiblilty to extract your pound of flesh. The details needed are all in the first ST article.

    I am not sure you will be able to continue a career in art curating. I sincerely hope not. You are just as guilty as the 3 jokers. When you allowed the deception to continue, you had become one of the primary perpetrator of this lie.


    YES, KAYCHIN, YOU DUPED THE ORGANIZER.

    I have taken some time to explain but obviously, it either didn't matter or I am not to be believed. So if it is yours and others opinion that I duped the organizer, then what can I say? And if that is the price I have to pay for my role, then I will have to live with it.
