Singapore Art Museum: Art or Mosquito Den?

Over the weekend, I was walking along Bras Basah heading to Baja Fresh for a good serving of burrito for dinner. Along the way, I came across the Singapore Art Museum (SAM) which is a must visit in Singapore in my opinion. Before the building is a small plot of land where SAM strategically used to display the featured artist. Last time, it was a huge bunny, named Walter. So I wondered what it is this time?

And I saw this:

Pardon the shaky hands. Hungry for dinner.
Pardon the shaky hands. Hungry for dinner.

I think my jaw dropped when I saw it and realized what it was. At first, it didn’t occur to me what it was but then I stopped and thought:

Huh? A dig site with lights in it?

So I finally looked over the sign thinking that the actual display was not yet out. It wasn’t.


In an artistic way, it’s teasing. Sort of. Though after looking at it while rushing to get dinner, all I could thing of is this really art? Or someone has to call the National Environment Agency and expect the rise of dengue incidents within the area? Hope they treated it though. 😛
