Once Upon A Night, by Koh Yee Chao

I started documenting Chinese spirit-mediumship or Tang Ki back in 2011, where my journey often took me to rituals held in the dead of the night.

My fascination with the Chinese rituals dates back to my early childhood, growing up in a kampong nested on the boundaries of Bukit Brown cemetery, where my grandfather worked as a caretaker. From him, I learnt about the Taoist beliefs and the importance of life and death, which subsequently got instilled in my mind.

I hope to show the viewers images of my journey through the realm of Chinese spiritual possession, as it is a significant culture in Chinese society since history up till today.
