GR.iD, formerly known as POMO mall, has launched Singapore’s largest indoor shopping mall mural. Titled “Motherboard”, the mural spanning a height of 7 stories took 750 man-hours and 7 painters to complete. This masterpiece is a collaboration between GR.iD, the students from Lasalle College of the Arts, Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA), School of the Arts Singapore (SOTA), Nanyang Technological University (NTU) as well as arts collective, Asylum Drift.
The mural was created to spark conversations between Singaporeans and reflect the vibrant and creative energy from individual Singaporeans which form a collective community of artists and visionaries.
Like a motherboard, GR.iD aims to be the centre of inspiration to foster an innovative spirit in many of us. A motherboard is also a complex circuit that is full of data and information, allowing for interaction between multiple parts which resonates with the Singaporean narrative made up of different viewpoints, perspectives, voices, and languages.
Asylum Drift, an arts collective made up of graduates and students from Lasalle College of the Arts, will also be organising “Airplane Mode” at GR.iD from November to December 2021. Showcasing local artists, the event aims to promote the art culture and creativity of Singapore and will feature various creative public workshops such as art illustration, knitting and songwriting workshops as well as independent retail brands and an exhibition of creations.
