The Singapore Art Museum (SAM) is holding an exhibition about paper as a storytelling medium from now till Aug 14. 

Called Superfluous Things: Paper, the exhibition consists of interactive elements as it is meant to engage audiences with its thought-provoking ideas and emotional resonance through paper manipulation.

The exhibition spotlights works by nine contemporary artists as they explore their creativity through paper. 

Some of these works include Just a Little at a Time by Malaysia-born Singaporean artist Cheryl Teo (@captain.lulo), who made miniature paper sculptures as small as a matchbox every day for the project, as well as 100ish Meaningless Statements by Singapore-based playwright, editor, and artist Nabilah Said (@nabbycat), whose collaborative visual poem installation is meant to explore the possibilities of what paper can be.

The exhibition is located at Gallery 2, SAM at Tanjong Pagar Distripark. Admission is free for all Singaporeans and Permanent Residents (PRs).
