The pure white room filled with all white furniture by Yayoi Kusama, invites kids to “obliterate” the room turning them into artists, having fun using dot stickers to decorate the room.
Firewalk, A Bridge of Embers
This art installation is by Mark Justiniani where it gives an illusion to visitors like you are walking in mid-air, observe the objects placed inside that were once treasured from toys, books, building blocks and letters.
Homogenizing and Transforming World
Enter into a world of brightly-lit balls by teamLab. Kids will have a fun time walking through the maze-like room, watch the balls change colours and produce sounds when touched.
This installation is by local artist Chng Seok Tin where it features art within art with 5 smaller wooden blocks being placed into the main artwork also of wood materials.
Children are free to express themselves by colouring over the woodcutting piece, take a piece of white paper and have fun colour over it.
From Rochor to Kallang
This installation is by Singapore artist Vincent Leow, visitors can look forward to look at 20 towers that are placed with bird traps. They are coloured to remind us of the blocks of flats at Rochor Road. Inside the bird traps, common objects are being placed to reflect on what home really means to us.
There are many activity stations for kids to work on and even have the opportunity to hang up their artwork. Do prepare to spend some time at Gallery Children’s Biennale and enjoy having a fruitful and fun-filled time for the whole family!
