Works by 12 local artists on display in Funan mall till Feb 12
The artworks are inspired by the imaginative and social nature of the rabbit.
The third edition of Funan’s mall-wide art activation, titled Creative Intersections: In the Year of the Rabbit, returns from now till Feb 5.
Organised by Funan and curated by Chan + Hori Contemporary, it is also a part of the Singapore Art Week 2023.
According to a press release on Tuesday (Jan 10) from Funan, visitors can find works of 12 local artists inspired by the imaginative and social nature of the rabbit around the mall. Among these are six artist-and-brand collaborations.
One of such collaborations is between playwright Nabila Said and BERNINA, a brand specialising in sewing machines.
Titled The Impossible Third, Nabilah’s artwork manifests as both a poem and an installation art piece made of embroidered fabric.
Eyewear retailer Lenskart collaborated with artist Howie Kim to present a large-scale installation in their outlet.
Toy and figurine fans can check out the collaboration between toy customiser Rex Lee and BLAXK by ActionCity.
Those who prefer succulents and terrariums can explore a series of artworks and workshops titled Does the Rabbit Dream of the Artist?
This is a collaboration between Terrarium specialist The Green Capsule and former lawyer-turned-artist Yen Phang.
One of the few female Singaporean marble sculptors, Ong Si Hui, has partnered with Chokmah to present workshop sessions that turn recycled art materials into everyday use objects.
The relationship between native and non-native is made obvious by artist and anthropologist Firdaus Sani, in his partnership with Edible Garden City.
Those who would like to learn more about these plants can do so at the Edible Garden City’s rooftop farm in Funan.
There will also be six vibrant Funan Passion Rabbit sculptures on display, customised by six artists in response to the mall’s colours and passion themes of Play, Chic, Taste, Fit, Tech and Craft as well.
Creative Intersections: In the Year of the Rabbit runs at Funan till Feb 5.
