Here's taking a closer look at what you and your little ones can expect at i12 Katong this Lunar New Year:

Art Exhibition of the World’s First Sculptures of Chinese Zodiac Animals

i12 Katong will be spotlighting the first-of-its-kind Chinese zodiac animals art sculptures, made completely from upcycled flip-flops. Commissioned and handcrafted by six talented Kenyan artists from OCEAN Sole Africa, a non-profit and social enterprise with a mission to clean polluted beaches and provide careers to artisans in high-impact communities; the spectacular displays are inspired by the legacy and tale of the Chinese New Year zodiac animals and were unveiled to shoppers on 2 January 2023.

The zodiac sculptures are a part of i12 Katong’s drive to spotlight novel art collaborations driven by sustainable practices, in line with Keppel Land’s commitment to sustainability. To raise awareness of the importance of sustainable living, the artists behind these exhibits aim to not only create beautiful works of art, but to also promote conversations about environmental issues.

To usher in the Year of the Rabbit, a 3-metre-tall rabbit sculpture will take centre stage at the mall’s atrium on Level 1. Made over 21 days from 2,875 pairs of worn-out and discarded flip-flops, the impressive sculpture depicts the rabbit’s abundance and longevity, while raising awareness of the tangible impact that our lifestyles can have on the environment.
