Here are some photos from the opening night.
The Super Singapore Sale art exhibition is located at the ION Art Gallery level 4. It will be there until 2 June 2012.
The art gallery was really inconspicuous because there's no storefront with a big sign. To make it worse, there's a long corridor leading to the actual gallery. You can't see anything until you're art the end of the corridor.
It was more crowded than I expected.
The exhibition is actually a parody of the Great Singapore Sale, the annual shopping event with discounts to boost retail sales.
The theme is such that everyone has to come up with something that represents shopping.
I didn't really know what to expect. For some pieces, I have trouble relating back to the theme.
This piece is done really well. It's a photo collage art piece made up of photographs taken at a local Indian temple. It looks nice and I kind of like it but really can't figure out how it relates to shopping.
The idea for this piece is great. It's a sculpture made of metal.
Tia and her acrylic painting. Something very different from her usual style.
Her having a bit of fun with the crocodile sculpture above.
The paintings behind are from Sarah Choo, second from left. She sold one of them that night.
This piece is from Hannah Tan, second from the right. She was telling me not to use hairdryers or fans to dry oil paintings. She finished her piece quite early and had to wait for it to dry.
Another piece from Hannah.
