Event Details

Much has been said about Singapore being a concrete jungle and many Singaporeans being unaware of and apathetic towards native biodiversity and natural habitats within our borders. In fact, it has been ingrained into our collective psyche that Singapore is land-scarce and that economic growth is paramount to our survival, seemingly implying that Nature has no place on our crowded island. The word ‘divorce’ also suggests that akin to marriage, Singapore used to enjoy a happier relationship with Nature, but is this a wishful presumption on the part of romanticising nostalgics? Perhaps, Singaporeans have never valued Nature. Dr Vilma D’Rozario will, through her personal observations and participation in Nature-related activities, examine Singaporeans’ past and present attitudes towards Nature. Also, through a series of photographic artwork depicting Nature in Singapore, Mr Ang Song Nian will examine our dynamic relationship with Nature and see how we mutually influence each other. Not only do our attitudes towards Nature shape our influence on Nature, but our way of living has also been shaped by Nature in many inconspicuous ways.


Speakers: Dr Vilma D’Rozario, Mr Ang Song Nian

Moderator: Mr Goh Ter Yang

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.
