The Everyday Museum - Tanjong Pagar Distripark

As part of its long-term public art initiative, Singapore Art Museum (SAM) has launched The Everyday Museum, presenting art projects and programmes across Singapore to inspire interest and curiosity in art.

The Everyday Museum starts from the Tanjong Pagar District, with Ming Wong's Wayang Spaceship (2022) landing at Tanjong Pagar Distripark.

Located prominently with the Singapore seaport as its backdrop, Wayang Spaceship is a mixed media project that explores the convergences between Chinese opera and science fiction.

Wayang Spaceship (2022), Image credit: Singapore Art Museum

By day, the work seems to be dormant, reflecting the harbor and the movements of the post-industrial surroundings at Tanjong Pagar Distripark.

When night falls at about 7 p.m, the spacecraft is triggered by an array of light, music, and moving visuals recalling the colors of Chinese opera scenes and costumes from a faraway space and time.

Aside from Wayang Spaceship, 2 other public artworks have been commissioned by the Everyday Museum; The Oort Cloud and the Blue Mountain: Edition Tanjong Pagar Distripark (2022) by Hazel Lim-Schlegel and Andreas Schlegel, in collaboration with neuewave, and Creatif Compleks (2018/2022) by Michael Lee.
