an affiliate project of singapore biennale 2016
ArteFACT; Unearthing Relics of the Future explores the concept of space within the context and effects of modernisation in Singapore. As a society and its people progress, artefacts are created, remolded, destroyed and often discarded. Where then do artefacts reside or find a place they belong to?
An outdoor artwork installation located in the visual arts precinct of Gillman Barracks, ArteFACT explores the idea of personal and public spaces, and how one conceives of space through installations, objects, navigations and memories. ArteFACT aims to engender conversations about our past, present and aspirations for the future, and what it means to hold on to a piece of Singapore.
A collaborative showcase, the artwork brings together practitioners from fields spanning educational, musical and public relations, and invites audience participation through artist-and facilitator-led workshops on 16 - 20 January 2017.
