The Substation Rubble Project: Murmuration

  • 19 Aug to 27 Aug
  • 10.00 AM to 10.00 PM
  • The Substation
  • Free Admission

How does a space reveal the imprints of its past? How does its history inform the potential for its future? Examining the building of The Substation as a window into understanding both The Substation's past and its future, the Rubble Project introduces a series of artistic interventions into the now obsolete box office. Incisions and intrusions into the space expose the contested histories embodied within its scars, marks and ruins, reactivating the box office as a site for alternative imaginings.

Transforming the interior of the box office into a fluid light environment, Murmuration uses an interplay of light and shadow to explore different ways of encountering the space. Ong Kian Peng's multimedia installation re-animates the flow of movement within the box office space. As light pulsates through a space long forgotten, dormant space appears to breathe again.
