An event for everyone, March in Singapore kicks off with Instagram-worthy light art illustrations, creative design fairs, adrenaline-pumping concerts before rounding off with a cocktail indulgence.
March 3-26 | i Light Marina Bay
[Behind the Artwork: Artist Q&A 6] 3 Questions with Syndicate featuring Brandon Tay, Kiat, Safuan Johari 1. Describe your artwork in 5 words. Syndicate: Symbols. Science. Magic. Planets. 2. Share the inspiration behind your creation. Syndicate: The inspiration behind the piece was to trace the classical symbolism of the planets, adapt them to a contemporary context and turn the facade of the ArtScience Museum into a planetarium documenting our relationship with the night sky through the ages. 3. What can the public look out for when they interact with the artwork? Syndicate: We hope the public can reconnect with the night sky while feeling that sense of wonder and imagination – to see hunter giants in Orion, bears in Ursa Major or lions in Leo; to imbue these faraway sparks of brilliance with meaning again. #iLightMarinaBay #MarinaBay #Singapore

March 4-5 | Design, Make and Craft Fair
Design Make and Craft Fair (4-5 Mar) | @kllylmrck is the abbreviated form of Kelly Limerick, the pseudonym of Singaporean-born artist Kelly Lim. Kicking off with a project entitled HANANA in 2013 inspired by mythical Japanese monsters, kllylmrck came up with a collection of original creatures in the form of mini pouches. This sparked off the 'kimo-kawaii' (きもかわい い) style- a Japanese term meaning grotesque-cute- which has since led up to the fantastical knitted sculptures with their focus on textures and details unique to the brand. In the predictable world in which we live today, kllylmrck aims to break the patterns by forming new characters in an abstract way without a plan- creating almost beyond imagination. #singaporedesignweek #designmakecraft #designmakecraftfair #supermamawa #supermamasg
