Angles of Incidence: Singapore Botanic Gardens
A temporary installation in response to the universal themes of heritage, memory and identity.
Angles of Incidence is the result of the third Singapore International Foundation-British Council Artist-in-Residence Exchange (SIF-BC AiRx) programme featuring Singaporean artist-architect Randy Chan and British artist Philippa Lawrence. Following residencies and interactions with communities in each other’s cities – Singapore and London – Chan and Lawrence have created a site-specific collaborative installation which will be launched at the Singapore Botanic Gardens on 14 January 2014.
“Angles of Incidence comprises reflective multi-faceted steel pods placed beneath the canopy of an 80 year-old Kapok tree to create a dynamic relationship between the installation and its environment. Visitors will experience the oscillation between the installation and nature as the reflective installation merges into and emerges from the landscape.” Tolla Sloane, Curator
Being Singapore’s first nomination as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the gardens provides a befitting backdrop for both artists to create a temporary installation in response to the universal themes of heritage, memory and identity.
