There’s something more to see than just flora and fauna the next time you’re taking a stroll in your local park — if you’re lucky, you might come across one of the 14 larger-than-life art installations that are part of a public art showcase commissioned by the Public Art Trust (PAT) under the National Arts Council (NAC).
Titled Rewritten: The World Ahead of Us, these art installations are spread out across a 36-km-long trail that spans coast to coast, popping up in places like Sengkang Riverside Park, Jurong Lake Gardens, and Lower Seletar Reservoir Park.
This was part of an initiative by the arts community in response to an open call by NAC. The art installations convey messages of hope and resilience via multi-sensory experiences, such as a regenerative seed pod and soundscapes atop a grass mound.
“Just barely a year ago, arts spaces went dark and a hushed silence enveloped the nation at the height of COVID-19. Artists started to look inwards and seek new avenues of expression, and Rewritten presented an opportunity for them to push their creative boundaries and create works that inspire,” says Tay Tong, Director of Sector Development (Visual Arts), NAC.
