The last time we hit exploring a museum was the National Museum. Post for that can be found HERE. The people over at the National Heritage Board caught my post that was posted up at yesterday.sg as a National Museum feature. *Honoured honoured hahaha* and thankfully sent us complimentary tickets to the Singapore Art Museum to check it out. Each ticket costs $8. My mother in law came along too!
The rooms were cold and we walked along the spaces looking at what was displayed on the walls and on the floor. Various shapes and abstract pieces all around.
Then we went up to the 3rd floor which had a Korean Art Exhibition. Some pieces were somewhat peculiar, abstract, some with alot of clutter and there were pieces that were done 3D style. I like this piece because it reminded me of Toy Story, the cartoon.
The 3D pieces was what I found interesting bc they were flat art pieces but were painted with such depth of shading that they looked like they were popping out and 3D! I stood in front of each piece to sway left, right, front and back just to admire how holographic they looked.
This was interesting to me because I'm sure there are times where we always wonder how things work or how things are built and if there were actually little people like that making things happen. Ie little people in the ATM machines.. or little people in our heads when we have a headache.. or little people in vending machines...
But the best of all was this piece which I thought was absolutely beautiful. I stood looking at this piece for a while because I love how they made that droplet of water look so 3D and showed how water has focal and magnification power of something it's placed against. And colour wise, it was just gorgeous. Somehow though, it seemed reminiscent of an art piece I'd expect to see in a lobby of a 5 star hotel.
Along the corridors, there were many displays of clay art which was made into various abstract forms, there was a long stretch of these shell-like sea creatures that lined the cabineted displays. Along with explainations of various methods of how to manipulate clay... ie. pinching....
Right in front of this wall was a table and it had colour pencils and papers for the children to colour so the girls sat themselves down and did a little colouring while I walked about viewing the other exhibits in that room.
This video projected show was quite strange but yet strangely intruiging. It had a naked woman kneeling and not moving.
And seconds after, from the ceiling came pouring down streams and streams of flour. Right over her head. And she doesn't move while this goes on for about 2 minutes. The flour just keeps piling on her head, shoulders and body and she doesn't move. My mom in law and I just stood there silently and watched as the flour streamed on this woman.
Then it stopped and she shook off the flour from her head and body onto the floor around herself and gathered it into a pile in front of her and then.... water started dripping from the ceiling right into her flour pile and she started mashing and kneading the flour into a huge dough ball.
All the while she was doing that, my mom in law kept on commenting "eeee... eeee.. would u eat that? would u eat that?" ahahaahaha!
That woman made it seem like she was very buay song *not satisfied* while she was kneading the dough, slapping it about and wacking it. When the dough was formed into a ball, she rolled it out and started pull it into little pieces and throwing the individual pieces onto the floor.
When it was all broken up, she gathered it all again and made it on big lump. The End.
That video must have gone on for at least 8 minutes but we still stood there TWICE to watch it. It must have been that she was naked that it was so intruiging. And who makes bread like that anyway!?!
Naked and making bread that way? = Strange = Classified as Art. Wahahhaaa...
It was an experience though.
Lauren on the other hand says "so nice! I like!"... err... SOTA* anyone? I think I should start saving up for a course for her there in some years... *SOTA - School Of The Arts* or maybe La-Salle or maybe NAFA.... we'll see... and leave it up to her.
