Sk(r)etch by Ca Kway Teow x 3M
23 Aug to 31 Aug
7.30pm – 12mn
Queen Street, (outside Kum Yan Methodist Church)
In a nation governed by an obsession with cleanliness, discipline and efficiency, everyday spaces like a bus stop exist as oddly familiar yet sterile markers of our daily lives. Inspired by childhood “mischiefs” of doodling on everything – Ca Kway Teow invites everyone to loosen up and get in touch with their inner child in this alternative space.
Sk(r)etch is where the public is encouraged to leave their marks, quite literally, by scratching off the paint to reveal a mosaic of bright colours and patterns, created using 3M™ Reflective Sheeting, that come together to tell Singapore’s story.
Ca Kway Teow presents Sk(r)etch in collaboration with global science company 3M.
