Singapore River Nights Festival 2015

Les Voyageurs by Cédric le Borgne

The Singapore River Nights is back with a stellar line up of performances, art installations and light shows taking place over the next two weekends on October 23-24 and October 30-31. This year theme “Colours of Life“, brings the Singapore River to life with a dazzling arts and cultural celebration.

This installation of larger- than-life human figures along the Singapore River invites dreamy wonder. The trans-parency of the material, when teamed with lighting, imbues these sculptures with a special, ephemeral quality.

160 by Pierre & Joël Rodière / Trafik

160 is one of my favourite installation. It is an interactive light and sound installation consisting of 160 light bars covering an area of about 60 meters.

Singapore River Nights

Popping up, guerrilla-style, across Singapore’s landscape of flats and heartland enclaves, Walter reinvigorates spaces and delights passersby. At Empress Place, Walter invites you to reimagine old colonial buildings, and to think of art and history, the old and the new.

Ocean of Flowers by Li Hongbo

Li Hongbo’s paper sculptures breathe fresh air into traditional Chinese arts and crafts. Ocean of Flowers presents a sprawling land- scape made of thousands of brightly coloured “flowers”. The work speaks of power, peace, destruction and beauty. Ironically, when flattened, they are revealed as weapons such as bullets and handguns.
