Event Details

Scrape, scratch, scrape again. A gelam tree is planted. Each day, tourists surround the tree and run their hands over its bark, to affirm what this place means: a place named after a tree.

Join us on a guided walk to see 11 site-specific art installations within Kampong Gelam. It is not only about trees, but also their ghosts, their past lives, and how maps have shaped this neighbourhood. Lines and boundaries scraped and scratched, until they blend into a palimpsest of fickle lines and faithless memories. For each road drawn, each building gazetted, each heritage plaque erected, there is a missing story that speaks of fractured spaces and communities long gone.

Once a bustling colonial port — it still holds its scars, scrapes and scratches; it still holds its dreams and tragedies.
