“Blossom Colours of Life” is a community art project co-created by Singaporean artist, Tan Haur, with patients of the Jurong Community Hospital. Strolling down the memory lane with patients, the artist gathered heart-warming stories of senior participants through simple heartfelt conversations and craft sessions, and translated them into a visual journal of 15 colourful fabric collage artworks.
The art-making process encourages patients to revisit those nostalgic scenes of yesteryears and reminisce about their favourite food, the simple life and the good old kampong days. Stories were stitched together to form intricate fabric collages of iconic landmarks like the former National Theatre and objects like Tingkat and rotary dial phone – each rekindling a connection between the past and the present.
The pattern-rich art pieces adorn the walls of Jurong Community Hospital, bringing to life stories and experiences of our shared heritage and history that would allow patients to relive fond memories and be inspired with hope and optimism.
