A part of Singaporean artist Michael Lee died in Berlin last year.

There for an artist-in-residence programme, he met many other artists from around the world who, like himself, had flocked to the city, a hotbed of art and creativity, to deepen their artistic practice.

The exposure, however, also shrivelled his confidence a little.

Lee, 42, whose body of work frequently references architecture, says: "I used to think the architectural model is associated with me but when I went there, I found that every other artist uses it too."
