Nicola Anthony's sculpture Great Soul will be taking part in Field Trip Project Asia: Singapore, the newest exhibition instalment of travelling project Field Trip Project curated by Daisuke Takeya.
CO-CURATED BY TWARDZIK CHING CHOR LENG
"Co- curated by Twardzik Ching Chor Leng, this exhibit represented Singapore’s generous, compassionate, culturally diverse and broad-minded capacity commemorating its fiftieth anniversary. The exhibition also included projects produced by students from Yishun Town Secondary School, led by teacher Candy Tong. In addition to the exhibition, there was a forum on activism and community with Jay Koh, Faris Basharahil and Loo Hwee Hwee at the Central Public Library and an artist talk by selected participating artists at LASALLE College of the Arts. These multi-faceted events enriched meaningful engagements with various communities in Singapore and extended to neighbouring nations. The FTP arrived in Singapore in August, 2015. As Singapore is largely protected from natural disasters such as earthquakes, tsunami, typhoon, and devastating floods, the intention of bringing the project to this island nation was to cultivate awareness and connect people through compassion and art. Programmes such as artists’ talk, forum on activism and community, art exhibition and art performance were planned to get the community involved in the project. In the exhibition, there were 42 participating artists from Singapore, Japan, Indonesia, United Kingdom, Australia, India and Germany."
