Singapore Night Festival returns with a science fantasy twist. Here’s some photos from our walkabout.
This year’s festival atmosphere felt a bit muted, despite drawing some massive crowds on the opening night. Some spaces were too cramped, and even some pieces had queues.
KEYFRAMES by Groupe LAPS – continuously showing at the usual spot at the National Museum.
The Wheel House by Acrojou – a very popular performance piece that was almost impossible to experience unless you stake out early. This was only performed for the first weekend.
Shifting Interactions by LASALLE College of the Arts – a performance installation at the top level of National Museum.
Visitors can donate to build the Night Festival Lego artpiece, helping to fund next year’s festival.
The Festival Village is very cramped and small this year, as large pockets of the SMU grounds were closed for renovations.
Journey by NOVAK, featuring Soundtrack by Ed Carter – large-scale projection returns to Singapore Art Museum. This time, it’s a stunner.
Head over to the Armenian Street zone for street shows and live band performances.
A Kaleidoscope of Spring by NAFA – showing at the Ixora Room within the Peranakan Museum.
Samara by Max Pagel & Jonathan Hwang, Starlight Alchemy – a solitary tree standing in the fields beside the Armenian Church.
Light Force, Night Falls by GSM Project – just outside the National Design Centre.
Komorebi 2 by Lighting Planners Associates in collaboration with the NUS Design Incubation Centre – a rather simple piece compared to what was done in the past. Most of the visitors here are stuck in the line for #showerthoughts, an artwork with very low capacity.
