(Singapore, June 2022) When you are out on the weekend walking or cycling through one of Singapore's many parks there is a chance that you would come upon something unexpected such as dream bubbles in the far West, or an enlarged paper boat ‘afloat’ on a sandpit in Punggol Waterway Park. These whimsical works of As You Were are guaranteed to catch your eye and will be on display from 12 May to 30 October, allowing all to play and reconnect with one another and with nature.
Get your nature and art fixes all in one go, and have your spirits enlivened as you interact with these five Insta-worthy works with your family and friends, displayed in parks from East to West. These include:
