THIS January, more than ever, experience how good things come in pairs.
Funan’s third edition of its popular mall-wide art activation, titled Creative Intersections: In the Year of the Rabbit, continues its marriage of artists with brands to engage, inspire, provide access and treat both seasoned art lovers and mallgoers alike.
Read into text-based art in a poem and installation art piece made of embroidered fabric; glimpse into a surreal, curious and colorful world of the Water Rabbit in a walk-in installation designed in collaboration with an eyewear retailer; be guided on how to turn recycled art materials into useful everyday objects by one of the few female Singaporean marble sculptors; and check out re-modelled rabbit figurines by famed Japanese outfit MIMILA.
On top of these diverse collaborations and more, on display are six vibrant Funan Passion Rabbit sculptures customized by six artists in response to the mall’s colors and passion themes of Play, Chic, Taste, Fit, Tech and Craft.
The play on dualities, of artists and brands, retail and art, all mirror the life of rabbits who, just like us, are social creatures that do not thrive in solitude. In yet another inspired pairing, Creative Intersections is presented by Funan and curated by collaborator, curatorial consultancy and agency Chan + Hori Contemporary.
Adrian Lai, centre manager, Funan, said: “After a successful partnership for Creative Intersections last year, we are pleased to collaborate with Chan + Hori Contemporary again to come up with unique ‘shoppable’ experiences that enliven the bustling art scene at Funan.
As a paradigm for live, work and play, we look forward to offering a creative environment in our spaces for local artists, retailers and our shoppers alike this Year of the Rabbit.”
Creative Intersections is a part of Singapore Art Week 2023, and is ongoing until February 5, 2023.
