Community Arts Residency Showcase at Taman Jurong
Come and see what artists-in-residence Joanne Lio and Fajrina Razak have each created with the Taman Jurong community in this showcase that concludes their four-month residency.
The Community Arts Residency at Taman Jurong is an initiative by the National Arts Council in partnership with Taman Jurong Community Arts and Culture Club. It aims to provide artists with opportunities to co-create with communities, to shape communal spaces and reflect collective stories.
Of Motifs and Movements by Fajrina Razak
Inspired by the idea of creating a local batik motif, Fajrina and the residents explored motifs found within Taman Jurong and Singapore, from patterns in nature, to organic shapes such as the Merlion’s scales, to geometric shapes in buildings. To represent the individuality of each piece, the residents’ silhouettes form the final layer of the batik.
Enchanted Town of Memories and Dreams by Joanne Lio
Have you wondered how each of us would imagine the future? Led by Joanne through a process of reminiscence and review, various community groups created a utopian vision of their town using photographs they took of surrounding nature and architecture, which they converted into 3D works of art.
