Singapore Biennale - Stairway to Heaven

Saturday 14.10.2006

Went for the Singapore Biennale Walking Art Trail Tour - Stairway to Heaven ... which covers the following religious sites ... Maghain Aboth Synagogue, Church of Sts Peter & Paul, Sculpture Square, Sri Krishnan Temple, Kwan Im Temple ...

In line with the Belief theme, each site holds a couple of art exhibits that bear some relevance to the respective religions ... very interesting! Especially liked the 'Stairway To Heaven' installation artwork at Sri Krishnan Temple ... the artist created a fibre-optic ladder sandwiched between 2 mirrors installed on the ceiling and on the floor to create an optical illusion of a ladder to heaven ... very cool indeed!

Tourist for a day pics ...
