UnEarthed Exhibition, Singapore Art Museum

No comments
To be honest, I'm not a fan of contemporary art so I was very surprised that I actually enjoyed the UnEarthed Exhibition at the Singapore Art Museum. Perhaps it is because the exhibition had an environmental theme to it. The UnEarthed Exhibition offers insights as to "how artists living in Singapore's urban environment view and respond to the natural world." Here are a few of my favourites.

The effects of Singapore's "environment" on children.
Singaporean kids these days are under immense stress from the day they start kindergarten (no joke), and it boils and simmers throughout their childhood. The artist likens it to a piece of knitting - a lot of tension! The knitting is also green to highlight that our environment is also under stress the same way our children are, and of course, it is all due to man.

The effects of climate change on us.
 Stand in the corner of the room and feel the effects of climate change. Experience what it would be like as the waters rise and engulf the land.

Our effects on the environment - The Land Acquisition Act.

In conjunction with the exhibition, the Singapore Art Museum has engaged me for a series of upcycling workshops. To sign up, look out for updates on the museum's Facebook page!
