The fifth edition of Art Encounters by Art Outreach will travel to Bugis Town (comprising of Bugis Junction, Bugis+ and Bugis Street), from 21 August to 3 October 2021 featuring a site-specific commission by Singapore-based British artist Chloë Manasseh. Titled Petals Fall, Now and Then, the display comprises an exhibition of largeformat botanical paintings in one container, and a multi-sensorial installation in a second container that explores power of the imagination, the relationship between individual and collective memory, and identity anchored within spaces we hold dear. Scent by SIX, a homegrown fragrance label located at Bugis Junction, will be collaborating with the artist to customise an ambient scent to enhance the immersive installation.
The artist will be live painting within the space from 21 August to 3 September 2021, and sharing more about her practice and process developing the installation on Instagram live in September.
Venue: outdoor plaza of Bugis+
