In Wonder Woman, Nurrulhuda Binte Shaik Aminuddin photographed women dressed in Disney princess costumes within recognisable Singapore contexts.

For me, the intersection between different forms and materials is an important part of solving conceptual problems. Some questions can only be addressed through three-dimensional work, while others can be dealt with within a single print or photograph.


Nurrul has been focusing on themes addressing the contemporary crisis on how ideology, habits and culture are intertwined in our daily lives.

Each character in Wonder Woman reflects the fantasies that she dreams about as she confronts everyday realities. Through these intimate documentary experiences, Nurrul creates deeply personal and layered portraits using various media, continuing her exploration of social and cultural issues present in contemporary sociology.
