Established in 2006, the Singapore Biennale is an artistic event that focuses on exploring the differing uses of alternative public spaces in Singapore. It is the largest contemporary arts exhibit in Southeast Asia, and is traditionally organized by the famed Singapore Art Museum.
The Singapore Biennale 2011 featured more than 150 works by more than 60 artists hailing from 30 different countries. The artists posed interesting questions to viewers as they used artwork as a platform for change. The focus for 2011 was a question of where to draw the line between that which is considered public and that which is private.
One artist, Robert MacPherson, used black-and-white simplistic images to communicate the issue of consumerism and labor laws. Artist Ruben Ramos Balsa created an installation inside the Old Kallang Airport. A solitary lightbulb partnered with loud hammering sounds play on the connection between imagery and audio. Within the capsule of the lightbulb, a video shows stomping feet, and suddenly the noise comes to life.
For the Singapore Biennale 2011, Haroko Studio was commissioned to create a 360 degree virtual tour of the event. Since the show is such an extensive project, capturing every work was a unique task to accomplish.
