In this playful installation, Tan Wee Lit satirises the work-life balance that Singaporeans strive for. By placing 'essential' items such as gym bags and baby strollers in this giant toy kit, Tan reflects Singaporean's jam-packed lifestyles. The artist has deliberately left an empty slot in the bottom corner of the kit - inviting the viewer to step inside and complete the kit. This simple gesture is an important reminder that amidst the hustle and bustle of life, people's vitality and aspirations are the most essential factors that make life complete.
