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: Mapletree Business City Duration: Permanent Collection: Mapletree Dimensions: 52m x 11.3m x 5m (88 stems, between 2.2 - 7.2m in height)

Located in Mapletree Business City’s open plaza, The Conch is a large outdoor sculpture comprising 88 stems of elegant, trumpet-like sprouting forms that collectively form a wave-like sea of bells reminiscent of corals. One can imagine walking beneath the sculpture as though it were the canopy of a lush forest. Viewed from the office floors above, it appears as a singular organic shape, its multiplicity of parts playing out like the twirling polyps of a rich coral island.

The artwork draws inspiration from the idea of chancing upon a conch during a stroll along the beach and holding it to one’s ears to listen to the sounds of the sea. A poetic wind instrument, The Conch has stalks that are dotted with funnels where people can put their ears to and listen to the wind.
