Five Stones

Five Stones by Twardzik-Ching Chor Leng is a playful public artwork reminiscent of the familiar childhood game. Igniting personal memories and a collective remembrance of gathering around simple play, each stone offers exciting new ways of experiencing art in the everyday, and invites all to engage in the spirit of communal play and openness once more.

Five Stones has travelled across the island, and will be gathered in the Civic District during Singapore Art Week through a series of activations by five individuals, including Singapore artists Amanda Heng and Ezzam Rahman. Consisting quotidian actions of taking a walk, the local transport system or deep breaths, these poignant performances with the artworks reflect on our history of migration and the journeys people have taken towards home.

Five Stones was commissioned by the National Arts Council’s Public Art Trust to commemorate the Singapore Bicentennial.
