In this lecture performance, Zulkhairi Zulkiflee unpacks the nuances of Singaporean-Malay slang ‘world’. The colloquial use of ‘world,’ as employed in the Singaporean context, mainly refers to insubstantial claims that tend towards self-aggrandizement. By subjecting this colloquial parlance to creative examination, the artistic navigates the semantic scope of the term and traces out a multiplicity of obscured knowledge trajectories. Employing primary sources, social media, and insights from postcolonial theories, the lecture performance acts as a creative intellectual endeavour that glides through disciplinary boundaries, different structures of signification, the particular and the universal to connect local contexts with broader global frameworks.
