A luminescent whirl of fins and tails, suspended mid-air, beneath the silvery moonlight? The above-mentioned scene may sound like a flight of fancy, but this masterpiece of the imagination actually took shape at last year’s edition of the Singapore Night Festival. With its theme of water conservation, the installation art piece was a collaboration between global experiential marketing agency Auditoire and Singapore-based design practice Lekker Architects. It is one of many ethereal sculptures that illuminate Singapore’s Bras Basah-Bugis heritage precinct each August when the festival takes place. Long after dusk has fallen, festival-goers are treated to a sensory extravaganza – complete with dazzling interactive artworks, live performances and food – at various museums. The event has showcased both local and international artists such as Belgian theatre company Theater Tol and Catalonian performance artist David Berga, making it a vibrant cultural event not to be missed.
