The Site: The People’s Park Complex, with its cornucopia of activity and visual clutter, has played a pivotal role in the transformation of Chinatown and Singapore’s architectural, spatial and social landscape since its birth in the 1970s. Known for many firsts, including being the tallest residential space and mix-used building encompassing residential, office and carparking facilities, the Complex continues to capture our imagination, as it shapes and is shaped by the activities, movement and humanity in and around the building. The Exhibition: The ‘PPC | 珍珠坊’ exhibition, aptly held at the sixth floor carpark space of the Complex, aims to respond to notions of the ‘public living room’, where distinctions between the public and private are blurred, and human intervention is juxtaposed against the sterility of infrastructure and hardware in our urban environment. Through this new and immersive reading of the carpark and Complex, we invite audiences to reflect on and suggest alternative ways of appraising the treatment of public space, and at the same time, explore the hidden potential of parking architecture taking on a different existence. #PPC ----------------- Visual artists: Alecia Neo // Andreas Siagian & Budi Prakosa (Lifepatch) // Bruce Quek // Ernest Goh // Geraldine Kang // Jason Lim // Nakayama Yuta // Nicola Anthony // Philipp Aldrup // Ruyi Wong // Soph O // SSYSTM // Stephanie Burt // Tang Ling Nah & Activated C Studio // TraseOne PPC Performance Dialogues: Daniela Beltrani // Ezzam Rahman // Sophia Natasha Wei Music acts and collectives: Darker Than Wax // HBRD THRY // NADA// Nicholas Chim // Randolf Arriola // The Pinholes // 弦'z ~The Stringz~ Getai Group Presents: Deon // Syafii // Kindakid // Fzpz // Shaktiya // Yadin Workshops: Soph O // Andreas Siagian + Budi Prakosa (Lifepatch) ----------------- Event details: Dates: 15 – 30 January 2016 Exhibition Opening: 15 January, 7pm till late Stay tuned for full schedule and line-up General opening hours: Tues – Thurs: 6 – 9 pm Fri – Sat: Timings vary due to special events Sun: 3 – 9 pm Closed on Mondays FREE ADMISSION (except special events) NO OUTSIDE FOOD AND DRINK ----------------- Connected by: Hyphen Part of: Singapore Art Week Supported by: National Arts Council and Mackie Singapore Venue and F & B partner: Lepark Heritage partner: Singapore Heritage Society Innovation partner: VoiceMap Material sponsor for Nicola Anthony's work: NPE Art Residency
