The St Clare ward in Assisi Hospice has been transformed into an art gallery with over 20 pieces of vibrant and colourful art pieces by Chilean-born, Singapore- based artist Ms Eugenia Gajardo. This is the first time that a collection of art pieces has been specially created with hospice patients in mind and is permanently exhibited in a hospice ward in Singapore.
The collection’s largest artwork and namesake piece, “Alegría”, is the central focal point of the display. Measuring approximately 250cmx150cmx4.5cm, it is displayed in front of the elevator leading to St Clare ward. Objects associated with the care of the patients, including the nurse’s uniform, disposable gloves, a brush used by patients during their art therapy sessions and jigsaw puzzle pieces forming a heart, are incorporated beneath the art piece’s colourful and uneven surface. These objects symbolise the loving care provided by Assisi Hospice’s multidisciplinary team to the patients.
Venue: Assisi Hospice Level 3, 832 Thomson Road, Singapore 574627
