Singapore Art @ Gillman Barracks

Another Sunday afternoon, another spot of contemporary art.

Newly opened last month, Gillman used to be an old army barracks. With a splash of white paint & some well hung spotlights it’s now been beautifully restored into 13 galleries. Qwerky.

Three of the best have to be:

Sundaram Tagore Gallery – Stunning NatGeo-esq travel photography.

Donna Ong’s, ‘And We Dreamt We Were Birds’ – A site-specific installation of beds suspended from the air. Best of all you are encouraged to have a play and lay on them!

Marcel Duchamp at Equator Art Projects – A spot of Singapore humour in the ‘naked chess’ installation, and the ‘leave your shoes at the door’ joke – everything you see in the above photo is part of the art!

To get there: Catch the MTR circle line to (the amazingly named) Labrador Park. Then 10 mins walk North along Alexandra Road.

An.an.tas.in : The Anantasin is the name of a shipwreck just of the coast of the Sensi Parasise, Mae Haad Bay, Koh Tao, Thailand. It’s one of my many favorite places.

Lit.tle: Just because it’s cute.
