Singapore Art Museum.

SAM's got two great art shows on right now:

1. The Singapore Show: Future Proof features 25 young Singaporean artsts' works. This show is at SAM at 8Q and runs through 15 April 2012.

2. The Collectors Show: Chimera features art from 21 private collections around the world! See them at SAM itself. This show runs through to 25 March 2012.

I went along to the show opening and spent a few hours absorbing all the theories, questions and statements posed in the works. Here's a few snaps.

My artist friend Charles Lim's photos of buoys that mark the imaginary border line around Singapore. He photographed the view from inside Singapore waters and the view from outside.

This is a sight to behold! Crystals grown on loaves of bread!

A miniature "city" made entirely from various glass containers. This is by another artist friend Donna Ong.

This laser installation in the old chapel at SAM (the SAM building was originally St Joseph's Institution - an all-boys Catholic school) was breathtaking. I think these photos do no justice to the feeling of being in that room!

I hope you have the chance to go see the shows before they're gone!
