Public Artworks

Public art can take various forms, from 2D wall murals and 3D sculptures to performative and ephemeral manifestations of an artist's creative process.

More importantly, the conception and premise of the artwork is rooted deeply in the public sphere, where it is widely visible and freely accessible to all.

Material: Stainless steel Location: Gardens by the Bay (Kingfisher Lake) Duration: Permanent Collection: Gardens by the Bay Dimensions: 4.5m x 5m
Comprising two kingfisher sculptures, one in a perching stance and the other in mid-flight, this artwork is given pride of place at the Kingfisher Lake, one of the more tranquil and relaxing spots in the Gardens. These large, impressive kingfisher sculptures serve as location markers, and are a sight to behold as their metallic feathers catch the shifting rays of light on the lake surface. Sightings of nine species of kingfishers have been recorded in Singapore. Some of these, such as the White-throated Kingfisher and the Collared Kingfisher, are a familiar and welcome sight at the Gardens.
