Kampung Singa, translated, Lion Village, is an installation inspired by days of Singapore’s past, a time when kampungs or villages existed and provided space, greenery and sanctuary.
There is also the phrase “balik kampung” or “go home”, a colloquial phrase commonly used by army boys, and everyone Singaporean.
Presented raw and rustic, this human-scaled cabin-like installation is fitted out with a bench and built with rustin wooden materials evocative of a typical kampung house, providing visitors with a sanctuary, and some respite from the day at the end of Lock Road.
