Night Festival - 8Q @ SAM & National Design Centre

I love love Night Festival just because it marked the start of our love-ship back in 2009 ... =* 


happy Angs on a date night that's not on food and/or exercise... =P


met up with 蔡 mummy, alfred and angela and our first stop is 8Q @ SAM where my favourite annual exhibition "Imaginarium" is being held till 28 August ... this year's theme is "Over the Ocean, Under the Sea".... 


Underwater Labyrinth by Janice Wong of Singapore  




an installation that features compact colonies of 'corals' composed of approximately 1100 kg of isomalt sugar and 200 kg of chocolate. 

my noob question when i found out that all these were made from sugar and chocolate, "WHERE ARE THE ANTS?????"

Where is Mogus? by Mulyana from Indonesia 


doesn't these look like the fish biscuits for kids ? 







The Mogus, an imaginary octopus monster, is the artist's alter ego. 



green corals vs colourful ones 


This installation is created with yarn, cotton, felt, synthetic fur, vulcanised copper wire and dacron filling.

Apex Predator Series by Yuree Kensaku from Thailand

Don't they know it's the end of the Whale?  

The finale fin of shark's fins

looks so pretty and cheery at first glance then realised its morbidness where the artist ponders the possibility of nature's survival given mankind's insatiable greed.

new idea for origami display... =)

ADA by Karina Smigla-Bobinski from Poland





a huge glowing PVC ball with charcoal studs affixed to its surface.... these studs make indelible marks along the walls, ceiling and floor of the gallery when it is being pushed around the room and are only apparent when the glow from the ball shines on it.... it signifies the consequences of visitor interaction and similarly, our relationship with the sea... 

woah.... though i did notice the black lines on the ceilings, i was more interested in chasing the ball around the room..... oopx!!!.... i din know it holds such deep meaning... i'm impressed!!!

Bryde's Fountain (after Marcel Duchamp) by Krit Ngamsom from Thailand  




mini replicas of Duchamp's famous artwork 'Fountain' (1917)
read more about this famous artwork here.... very interesting on how a urinal can become so famous because it changed the way art is viewed and what art is ... 


Damien, I'm famished (after Damien Hirst) by Krit Ngamsom from Thailand  




This artwork was inspired by Damien Hirst's 'The physical impossibility of death in the mind of someone living' (1991) where a tiger shark was preserved in formaldehyde in a vitrine

An Effort Most Futile by Tan Zi Xi from Singapore 


spot the different trash from Mac, Nestle, Subway etc 



Plastic Ocean by Tan Zi Xi from Singapore 

a room filled with cleaned trash 


 
  


consisting of 26000 pieces of non-biodegradables, this installation invites viewers to experience the sensation of floating in a sea of trash....

would the sensation be stronger if there was a certain stench and accompanied by the sound of waves?!?!?! i just find the trash too clean for the message it wished to send across to the viewers...

The Sounds of the Estuary by Papermoon Puppet Theatre from Indonesia

 





luving this year's exhibits though they were abit dark ... looking forward to 2017's and hope that i will once again be able to plan it as a school learning journey.... =) 


having fun with the Snow app which Angela is currently having lots of selfie with...
