Singapore’s most Instagrammable pop-up market is back, and this year, look forward to a dazzling array of massive art displays for the first time ever. This year’s fiesta will be held at Singapore Turf Club (The Grounds@Kranji). The Grounds@Kranji, which spans 200,000 sq ft, was chosen to accommodate for the large installations and over 300 vendors to come.
Here’s a lenticular projection mapping sneak preview of the two-week jamboree exclusive only to SHOUT:
Taking on a Garden of Eden theme, Artbox 2019 is set to be a garden paradise with lush foliage, fairy lights and beautiful flowers.
At the entrance, come face to face with a three-level high container by local illustrator, Dianna. And there you go — your first Instagram pic of the day! But don’t forget to soak in the sights, smells and sounds you’ll experience as well!
As sensory experiences play a huge part in this year’s Artbox, don’t forget to check out this one of a kind lenticular artwork below. For those who don’t know, lenticular artworks are pieces that change or move as they are viewed from different angles. Think about it as an illusion; so you’d want to check out the entire display to see as many images as possible!
Erected on four 40ft Vertical Containers, this massive artwork display is Artbox’s first interactive projection with a local creative group, Ionix.Lab, and also possibly a Singapore first! This activation is supported by Epson and will project a mapping show for two minutes from 7pm to 10.30pm — don’t be late!
Also don’t miss out on one of the festival’s highlights, Heart Of Eden. Here, go on a multi-sensory walk through in a 40-footer shipping container. An exclusive Artbox 2019 perfume, Heart of Eden by Scent by Six, will be available near the Heart of Eden flower tunnel.
Finally, here’s the installation that’s meant to connect you with nature: a vine arch made by real plants from City Sprouts! The intention of this exhibition is to make you rethink your relationship with the environment — how much have you contributed, and what else can you do? Definitely check this exhibition out if you’re a nature lover!
As they’re real plants, have fun appreciating them, but remember to please be gentle! Other exciting installations to look forward to include an art pillar by the Singapore Children’s Society, an IP-focused interactive display by local startup LanternFox, works by NAFA students and art murals from regional artists.
And that’s just a tiny glimpse of what the festival looks like. Come down and see it in its entirety for yourself!
Apart from the new set up and installations, look forward to a myriad of food and lifestyle vendors and exhilarating art activities! At the Garden of Creation, try your hand at 3D printing or learn how to do mini pottery painting. This is also the time to stock up on your wardrobe as brands from all over the region like LOMA.WHALE, 2nu Sunglasses and Vintage 1961 will be there!
In addition, keep a lookout for Qoo10’s booth ‘Paradiso’, where you get to colour and buy your own tote bags with neon paint. Stand to win a PS4 when you take a photo of your customised tote bag and upload it on Instagram! What’s more, shop to your heart’s content at a curated Qoo10 valley — find lots of awesome products and wares from merchants!
