The Standing Men by AADN (FR)
18 Aug to 26 Aug
7.30 PM - 12.00 AM
Behind the interactive art installation of 16 human-sized figurines, The Standing Men call out to those strolling by to initiate a dialogue with them. Flashes go off in an echo, colors change… the statues come to life in an unpredictable way, transforming the entire installation into a ballet of light. The installation presented at the Singapore Night Festival features voices and emotions of inhabitants in Bras Basah.Bugis, who were recorded in August 2017.
