Art Stage: Singapore

The event came to a close last Sunday, and I managed to catch a quick glimpse of the amazing array of art works from a fantastic range of artists.

To tell the truth, I was nonchalantly saying that I will skip it since in Sybil’s opinion, it was a mere ‘ok’ despite the 1000 over pieces that were on show. Yet, to be fair, Sybil did encourage me to pop by saying how rare it is to have a display of this scale and of such big names. Point is, I walked in impressed with the realization that I am facing a shortage of time to cover the entire exhibition area. Here’s a brief run through of some of the pieces I saw and liked:

Part of the installation. Never mind my weird obsession with skulls.

Ai Weiwei, Fragments, 2005

Sybil said ‘an artwork is nothing without people’, which I thought about and realized is true after comparing two images, one with someone and one without. There is a vast difference in the energy level portrayed.

Cai Guo-Qiang’s work created by gunpowder. Never fails to create a sense of awe with the mere mention of gunpowder.
