What is happening?
Gallery Children’s Biennale 2019 is to feature 11 interactive and multi-dimensional artworks that seeks to tease the imagination of little ones and encourage them explore the world with an open mind.
Don’t shy away from interacting with the exhibits, rather you’re encouraged to experiment and explore with each of the artworks and let your imagination carry you to places beyond.
BIG HUG, an installation that spans four rooms—Discover the World, Friendship Room, Family Room and Self Room—is packed full with interactive and educational activities that allows you to discover more about yourself, your friends, your family and the world.
You can peer into the galaxy through a telescope, experience different professions, learn about colors, admire quirky drawings, and more.
Stardust: Soaring Through the Sky’s Embrace
Peer down as you walk along the 16-metre bridge and you'll be greeted by the sight of seemingly endless rock formation that glimmers and glows. If you ever wondered what it would be like to take a walk across the galaxy, you've got your answer at Stardust: Soaring Through the Sky's Embrace.
The Oort Cloud and the Blue Mountain
The Oort Cloud and the Blue Mountain is a 3D motion-activated wall-relief artwork, featuring LED lights, sounds, handmade objects and sensors. When you interact with objects like pompoms, LED lights and buttons, as well as the white circles on the floor in this quirky installation, you’ll be able to activate different sounds and lights. It's quite an addictive sensory adventure.
Crafted by using hundreds of paper cut-outs in five frosted domes, Every World, transports you into five different worlds, one just as magical as the next. Within each world are a myriad of plant lives and creatures, from reefs, mushroom and cactus, to fishes, birds and insects.
Dayung Sampan – be your own captain on deck
Sculptures like large propellers, a giant foot resembling a ‘sampan’, and a big bright birdcage, all together can only mean one thing—adventures beyond imagination!
You can also find large triangular beanbags that strangely look like the cloth bags used in the five stones games.
Inspired by Malay proverbs and created by Singaporean sculptor, Zainudin Samsuri, Dayung Sampan – be your own captain on deck, will be complemented by the revamped Children’s Museum which hosts a Sculpture Studio and an interactive digital game where visitors can create and exhibit a ‘virtual’ sculpture.
