The Lion’s Pride campaign, which uses Singapore’s iconic Merlion as its ambassador, will engage visitors through a series of fundraising art workshops, led by artist Diana Francis, to highlight the benefits of using art to enrich lives, help the underprivileged and promote mental wellbeing through art therapy.

On top of that, there will be a live painting demonstration and artists talk by Greg Mallyon (Australia), lively music and entertaining activities on the Harper’s BAZAAR stand. This evening is perfect for those looking to unwind from the working week in a relaxed and creative atmosphere.

INSTALLATIONS

Artopoly by Dean Zeus Colman, ongoing throughout the fair
Creative Hub, Room E, Level 3

Artopoly is an conceptual artwork created by artist Zeus (Dean Zeus Colman), inspired by the spectacular, and at times zany contemporary art market. Using a framework of the iconic property-trading game Monopoly, artists become the properties for sale, auction houses are the railroads, and the board as a whole is transformed into an art market on display for viewers to observe and critique. Additionally, “Just bidding”, pass “Ego”, or “Go to Auction” are some of the ways in which Artopoly playfully imitates the familiar game with an ironic and witty twist at every corner.

Balance Series by Dan, Luo, ongoing throughout the fair
Entrance, Level 2

Be prepared to witness sculptures that defy gravity! Created by Chinese artist Luo Dan, this sculptural installation, titled Balance Series, pushes boundaries and overthrows the audience’s visual comfort zone by elegantly balancing symmetrically posed performers on slim poles. Using bronze as the core material to depict the spry, corpulent forms and the roundness and fullness of the statues to create a visual tension that is both heavy and light. Luo's poetical expression leads the audience into an invisible world, giving shape to mystery.

The Daydreamers series by James Seet, ongoing throughout the fair
Entrance, Level 2

It’s a blissful feeling to close your eyes and let yourself think about things that make you happy. The process of daydreaming can transport you to alternate surroundings and pleasantly blurs reality in a fantasy of thoughts, hopes and ambitions. In this series of ceramic pieces inspired by the process of daydreaming, metallic glazes are used including bronze, pewter and hints of gold, challenging the viewer to question whether they are really ceramic pieces. Subtle illustrations and text are tattooed onto the sculptures to further enhance the visual disassociation.

Peroni x Cha Jaeyoung, ongoing throughout the fair
Entrance, Level 1 and Creative Hub, Room E, Level 3

South Korean artist Cha Jaeyoung will transform the fair entrance and the Peroni Art Bar with her large ethereal ribbon installation inspired by Peroni Nastro Azzurro. The use of ribbons is inspired by the conceptual movment of our conciousness, from the past to present, through the web of time, reliving and remembering life experiences. Accompany clouds forms represent the unexpected, dynamic and magical experience of travelling, during which you can have clouds at your feet. The installation epitomises the tradition of Italian craftsmanship, passion and flair upon which Peroni was founded.
