Co-organised by NUS Museum and NUS School of Design & Environment, Sheltered: Documents for Home traces our assumptions regarding domesticity and urbanity in Singapore’s public housing landscape. Using photography, architectural drawing, installation and publication, the projects featured began as responses to architectural essay film 03-FLATS by Dr Lilian Chee and Lei Yuan Bin. Dwelling on the spaces between architecture and domesticity, land and ground, the private and the public, this exhibition explores home as a place both of security and uncertainty, familiarity and alienation.
The exhibition consists of three components, each of which attempting to respond to their respective contexts: the first was presented at the URA Centre in late July 2015; the second is at NUS Museum; and the third opens as a satellite exhibition at the National Library Board’s Lee Kong Chian Reference Library in early October 2015.
Venue: Lee Kong Chian Gallery, NUS Museum
When: 11 Sep 2015 - 20 Mar 2016,
