Conceived by Sculpture Square’s first edition of Bureau, an ad hoc interdisciplinary agency that runs for four months researching and developing socially engaged art projects, the installation “Override” presents an in-depth investigation in the role of public in public sculpture.
Public sculptures are defined and marked by its position in public spaces and physical accessibility. Override is the second phase of Bureau One’s project where they take further their investigation by directly intervening into the spaces and sculptures so as to prompt a response from an otherwise elusive public. Also presented are interviews unpacking the process of erecting a sculpture with writers, art historians and artists who have created public sculptures.
Bureau One is composed of Ang Song Nian, Tan Peiling, Kamiliah Bahdar and Elizabeth Lim. Collectively they look into the audience and spaces surrounding sculptures in our city, asking where is the public in public sculpture.
