Event Details

Singapore has faced threats to its natural heritage from long before independence and over the years, different challenges have emerged. With the increasingly intensive urbanization of space in Singapore, such challenges show no signs of abating in future. Through the lens of our veteran conservationists Mr Leong Kwok Peng and Mr N. Sivasothi, we will review conservation successes and failures of terrestrial and marine environments in Singapore’s history. These thought leaders will also share with us what they feel are the upcoming conservation challenges, one of which is counter-intuitively, why Singapore should not remove non-native trees such as the Albezia from our nature areas. Art photographer Mr Koh Chaik Hong and visual artist Ms Lucy Davis on the other hand, will show us how photographs and other forms of visual artwork can be a critical commentary of the changing face of Nature in Singapore through two different styles: documentary and abstract. As a panel, they will discuss the various means of creative conservation outreach that may better invoke a responsive chord in the Singaporean psyche.

 

Speakers: Mr N. Sivasothi, Mr Leong Kwok Peng, Mr Koh Chaik Hong, Ms Lucy Davis

 

Moderator: Ms Natalia Huang

Cantik Lah Singapore! A Dialogue Between Nature and Art is an event organized under the umbrella of ArteFact, a collective of scientists and artists who are dedicated to exploring new ways of communicating conservation science. 

 
Is Singapore divorced from Nature? Should we be proud of being a Garden City? How can art help save Nature? Reflect upon these issues and more through panel discussions and photography workshops that marry Nature with the visual arts.
