Event Details

A symbol of rapid modernization and versatility on one hand, and of scientific rationality, barrenness, even dystopia, on the other, landscapes of Singapore have long been the cornerstone of the nation's artistic inspiration, production, criticism and analysis. By surveying works and practices of various Singaporean contemporary photographers, this presentation will attempt to dissect the portrayal and approach towards nature and natural landscapes in Singapore in art making. Drawing from diverse fields of semiotics, social history and cultural studies, this session also seeks to bring to light the complexities of landscape representation in the Asian context - how issues of power, hegemony and identity are explored through this subject matter.

Speaker: Ms Kong Yen Lin

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.
