Five Stones by Twardzik-Ching Chor Leng is a playful public artwork reminiscent of the familiar childhood game. Igniting personal memories, shared histories and a collective remembrance of gathering around simple play, each stone offers exciting new ways of experiencing art in the everyday, and invites all to engage in the spirit of communal play and openness once more.
The public artworks, which debuted as part of NAC’s Arts in Your Neighbourhood November 2019 edition, has since attracted thousands of residents in Punggol to interact with the work – touching the sculptures and playfully tossing them around.
Two sets of giant five stones will pop-up individually in 10 different locations island-wide over subsequent weeks, to enliven our public spaces and encourage people to bond over the interactive work. The 10 stones will be brought together as 2 sets again in the Civic District for Singapore Art Week in January 2020 where it will also be illuminated.
Echoing the tossing and gathering of five-stones, the movement of the work through our landscape is an attempt to recapture the city’s imagination and inspire the individual through each chance encounter.
