In conjunction with the 10th anniversary of the Singapore Night Festival, Aesop will be offering an evocative scent experience designed to prompt memory and recollection. Using scent’s ability to attach itself to certain memories and transport us back in time, a smell uniquely developed for the festival will act as an everlasting mark in the minds of visitors. The exhibition uses light to heat the essential oils, consisting of Bergamot, Sandalwood and Olibanum, in ten handcrafted steel wells, creating a space permeating with respite and reflection.

A solo exhibition by Safaruddin Bin Abdul Hamid aka Dyn, Dress Up aims to engage the physical aspect of iconic architectures in response to the frequent refurbishment of old and new buildings in Singapore’s ever-changing landscape. Travelling the globe, Dyn connects with international modern icons such as the Statue of Liberty from New York, the Opera House in Sydney and even the Merlion statue. To create his unique works, he layers a pastiche of colours upon the architectural form of a chosen icon, showing them in a different light.
Date: 27 July – 20 August
Time: 11am – 7pm (Closed on Mondays and Public Holidays)
