Rediscover Telok Ayer

Rediscover Telok Ayer

Date: 19 June

Once a settlement along the coastline, Telok Ayer is closely interconnected with the notions of arrival and identity.

Come experience the artistic confluence of cultures and histories at 'Rediscover: Telok Ayer' which features contemporary artists Shirley Soh, Hazel Lim, Dylan Chan and Sarah Lin. Together, they uncover tales of the area drawing on former residents’ memories and historical accounts to produce site-specific artworks that engage with the space it occupies. Journey safely through the trail of artworks without leaving home and see how these artists have interpreted the tales of Telok Ayer.

This initiative was project-managed by students from LASALLE’s BA(Hons) Arts Management programme in collaboration with the Urban Redevelopment Authority.

Saying “Goodbye”

Saying “Goodbye”

A food paradise; a clean and green city; a modern, cosmopolitan city-state - these are some of the common words and phrases that come to mind when one describes Singapore.

“Death” is not one such common word. Yet, death has been an important dimension of the everyday lives of Singaporeans. Our perceptions and conceptions of death, and the rituals, beliefs, practices and spaces associated with it are deeply embedded in the cultures, heritage, and identities of the different communities in Singapore. Nevertheless, they have also changed with the rapid development and transformation of Singapore economically, socially, and spatially. The topic of death in Singapore allows us to explore interesting perspectives on how burial and exhumations have continuously evolved as Singapore develops.
