Five Stones is a playful and interactive public art project consisting large-scale inflatables reminiscent of the familiar childhood game. Igniting personal memories, shared histories and a collective remembrance of gathering around simple play, each stone offers exciting ways of engaging and experiencing art in our lived spaces and the everyday.
The stones will also pop up in various locations around Singapore in December 2019, and gather in the Civic District for Singapore Art Week in January 2020.
A commission by the National Arts Council’s Public Art Trust, in commemoration of the Singapore Bicentennial.
