Uniquely Singapore? a generi-City project Taking Flight

While we are gearing up for our exhibition in London. Creative [SIN]ergy's Uniquely Singapore? a generi-City project, is taking flight back in Singapore.

We have been invited to present at the next Rojak on 28th August 2010. Rojak is a quarterly creative sharing session organized by Farm.sg.

Uniquely Singapore? a generi-City project is also part of a group exhibition called 'Our Singapore' held during Archifest 2010 between 3rd to 23rd October 2010. Uniquely Singapore? a generi-City project will also be part of a presentation at Really Ar? on 9 Oct October 2010. All of which will be held at Illuma in Singapore.

The overall theme for Uniquely Singapore? organized by Creative [SIN]ergy and Really AR? organized by re:ACT will take on the title ‘Our Singapore’ (questioning what makes Singapore unique and if these uniqueness are the defining qualities to Singapore, and how we identify Singapore as ours.)

What makes Singapore, Our Singapore? What makes our home so endearing that everywhere Singaporeans go, we can identify a part of our environment as something uniquely Singapore? Hence, we decided to play a pun on the Singapore Tourism Board tagline and reflect upon the idea of Our Singapore, but ending that with a question mark. The 3-week public exhibitions, that feature a series of pictorial studies done on generic spaces across UK and Singapore, will be held at Illuma Bugis from the 3rd to 22nd October. Also, we have planned a informal sharing session titled ‘Really Ar?’, showcasing a variety of projects that centred upon deriving inspiration from our truly Singaporean context. Through the events that will happen at Illuma during the Archifest 2010, we hope to inspire people to start discovering their spaces they can define as being Uniquely Singapore.
