Pictures in the Mind is a community arts exhibition exploring the visceral nature of public memories in relation to Peace Centre, one of Singapore’s oldest shopping malls built in mid-1970s. As a 50-year-old building that marked the early decades of Singapore’s rapid development since its independence in 1965, Peace Centre exists as pictures in minds and memories, which might enable us to understand its life story between the 70s and now. Through public participation, interviews, archival materials, artistic interventions, and technology, Pictures in the Mind surfaces images that tell a myriad of stories, which are both truth and imagined.
