Steal away for quiet contemplation with this plant-based art installation at the National Gallery’s Ng Teng Fong Roof Garden. The work is by leading Singapore artist, Charles Lim, who represented Singapore at the prestigious Venice Biennale in 2015. It comprises more than 30 species of plants found in reclaimed spots across Singapore. The process of transplanting, cultivating, and – at the end of the exhibition – disposing the plants mirrors stories of Singapore’s urban and coastal developments. Details here.
