Inspired by the movement of flocks of birds during their migration, experience this responsive installation on the Padang against the backdrop of the Art Skins on Monuments light projection on the Gallery’s façade.
With this work, an urban beach resurfaces along Singapore’s old coastline from 1843.
By unearthing a historical fragment of Singapore’s mutable shoreline, the installation explores the embedded psychogeographies of Singapore’s land reclamation and urban development since its colonial founding. The odd fragment of the shoreline that is far displaced from Singapore’s current land boundary elicits questions of how this urban district has evolved, and why. At the site of the Padang, the installation subtly recalls the myths of the nation’s history prior to its colonial past, and post-independence development. Rewinding 179 years of historical activity, the installation is an intervention of a pristine fragment of the past and invites viewers to contemplate the pliability of our urban ground. Embedded within the installation are ten stories, that aim to continue the conversation about Singapore’s layered land.
Discover cutting-edge artworks by renowned international artists—including KAWS, Olafur Eliasson, and Singaporean artist Ho Tzu Nyen—in this augmented reality art trail along the facade of National Gallery Singapore.
Where: National Gallery Singapore, along Andrew’s Road, (Bollards & Entrance)
