An exhibition which seeks to explore the interconnections between the environment and the pandemic was launched on Saturday (Apr 2) at the Jurong Lake Gardens Outdoor Stage.

Called Infectious Collaborations, it is organised by PAssion Wave, Jurong Spring and Taman Jurong Citizens’ Consultative Committee (CCC) and supported by the National Arts Council Singapore. 

The exhibit at Jurong Lake Gardens consists of an outdoor art installation, web experience and a series of public programmes. 

The project was initiated by artist Zen Teh and scientist Ching Jianhong, in collaboration with curator Hera and designer Lim Shu Min.

As part of the experience, Zen designed the installation to respond to Singapore’s humidity and light quality. As such, it will look different throughout the day and based on the weather. 

A corresponding web experience can be accessed on-site and remotely to add to the interactiveness of the installation.  

Additionally, tours will be organised in April to bring visitors through the art installation. Members of the public can sign up for these tours via the PAssion Wave website.

Creative workshops and online talks have been arranged as well to provoke thought and further engage the public. 

The exhibit will be available until Apr 27.

“We hope the exhibition will encourage more people to learn, support and embrace nature sustainability by helping to play a part in conserving the environment to make it a better place for all,” said Ms Norhayati Daud, Assistant Director (PAssion Wave), Lifeskills and Lifestyle Division, People’s Association.
