Placing Home: Woodlands

Placing Home: Woodlands is a public art project curated by Dr Wang Ruobing that explores ideas of home and movement within Woodlands.

Writer Pico Iyer once remarked that “Movement is a fantastic privilege, [but] only has a meaning if you have a home to go back to”. What is home, though, if not only a dwelling place?

While a place is defined by its historical and cultural identity, and a space can emerge from the physical scales of an area bound with social practices, home is one of the sublime consequences when place and space converge – a habitat for humanity associated with a piece of soul.

To experience home in a public domain is thus a way of encountering spaces in between places. Drawing from this concept, Placing Home: Woodlands presents five artworks in the neighbourhood that invite all to look at our surroundings with fresh eyes and ask questions about the world in which we live.
