Museums are my thing. That’s how it is. Other people enjoy going to theme parks or shopping and yes, trying out all the scrumptuous food they can whenever they go to foreign and new places but I take a different route when I’m given the chance and enjoy a day at the Museum. Some people think it’s pretentious, losing yourself in a sea of artwork and being confined in its four walls but I find that I’m home whenever I’m in one. I don’t mind if other people don’t get it, I never expect them to, but I’m glad there are a chosen few who stay a while, even for just a moment so I can enjoy. That day it was my sister Germaine who
forced came. haha. Thank you @germthegerm. Below are a few of my favourites over at the Singapore Art Museum. Enjoy!
Here’s a beautiful wall installation made out of porcelain. This one is called “Trace” by Liu Jianhua refrencing wu lou hen the art of Chinese Calligraphy which means “water stains on the wall”.
We found our way to this magnificent metal machine made by Choe U-Ram from South Korea called “Custos Cavum“. This one actually moves.the tips of the leaves & the tale. Even the ribs had it’s own movement making it look like this mythical creature was breathing.
Approaching this design my heart was racing. haha! Presenting the Golden Teardrop. I work in a personalised systematic way so I am attracted to design or pattern that’s created in a special algorithm like this one from Thai artist Arin Rungjang. I really wanted to touch it, but of course it was not allowed. So this one took me a while to take in.
Found my way to the Contemporary art section, Medium at Large, where there were these sculptural canvasses by Mit Jai Inn. They were untitled but I read that he played in between medias and I guess he wanted to show it as part painting and part sculpture since his pieces are usually used either way interesting enough.
To sum up my trip it mostly consisted staring in awe and amusement till it was time to go home. Hoping for more museum trips similar to this one this year!
