Chronicles of a Circuit Breaker
Look inside the book
Funny and stark, this comic strip memoir relives the surreal days of Singapore’s Circuit Breaker days from April to June 2020.
Cartoonist Joseph Chiang records the strangeness and the mundanity of daily life during the Circuit Breaker such as the toilet paper shortage, mask-wearing woes and forced family time. Chiang’s slice-of-life stories provide humour during unprecedented times and document local events and idiosyncrasies that stemmed from this new-normal era.
Joseph Chiang is a visual artist and printmaker. He is the founder of Monster Gallery, a creative print studio; and the Young Printmakers League, a mentorship programme supported by Noise Singapore. He was commissioned by the National Arts Council to organise the Contemporary Printmaking Festival as part of Singapore Art Week 2017. He has exhibited in Singapore and internationally, and was invited to show his work at the 10th World Triennale of Original Prints and Engravings in Chamalieres, France in 2017.
