Art Skins on Monuments
National Gallery Singapore
Art Takes Over on the monuments in the Civic District of Singapore.
On the former City Hall building and former Supreme Court building of National Gallery Singapore, visitors can watch this light projection of an explorer on his journey titled “Day & Night”.
At the Padang Atrium, this is like a stage for you to be a star and show the world through your sound and movement at this artwork titled “Stasis & Flux”. How do you like being part of the something larger than yourselves , to be a part of this world?
Along the side of the Supreme Court Wing of National Gallery Singapore , you would enter into a world of “Light & Shadow”, entering into a forest that encompasses both natural and surreal landscapes. Observe the relationships and surroundings, as they reveal something to you.
The Arts House
Continuing your Explorer journey to explore Light To Night Festival SG Art Week Edition in the Civic District sof Singapore. You would arrive at The Arts House, into this artwork “Order & Chaos”, just like this figure from the other side of artificial intelligence and virtual world looking at you, giving you utopia and dystopia, order and chaos all together at The Arts House where Art Takes Over on the monuments.
Victoria Theatre and Victoria Concert Hall
Moving on to the next Art Takes Over on the monuments, your Explorer journey to explore Light To Night Festival SG Art Week Edition in the Civic District of Singapore brings you to Victoria Theatre and Victoria Concert Hall. At this artwork, you can experience “Growth & Decay”, through renewal and degradation from the sun’s energy and force leading to both growth and decay.
Asian Civilisations Museum
As you arrive at Asian Civilisations Museum, this artwork “Dreams & Reality” brings you into life at the museum with the artefacts and objects coming to life at dusk, transforming into mythical creatures and landscape formations. At dawn, they returned back to normal again, is this just like the cyclical nature of your life journey?
Opening hours: Sunday to Thursday – 8pm to 10pm ; Friday to Saturday – 8pm to 12mn
