A peek inside Production Q and SPRMRKT's new project, The City Book - Singapore
What makes you call Singapore home? After publishing their first edition of the art and travel book series in Hong Kong, Production Q has teamed up with SPRMRKT to present a Singapore edition. An effort helmed by founder Queenie Rosita Law (a quick Google check will tell you that the Hong Kong native's a Bossini heiress), The City Book - Singapore tells both individual and universal stories of Singapore through the perspectives of local artists.
Limited to just 1,500 copies, the second edition pools together texts, images and anecdotes of what Singapore means to the artists, spanning themes from national identity and the tool of language to our own cultural landscape. The contributors include Genevieve Chua, Sarah Choo Jing, Hilmi Johandi, Charles Lim, Tang Ling Nah, Dawn Ng, Shubigi Rao and Robert Zhao Renhui. The art and travel guide is the one gift you need for your best foreign friend, or simply as your own coffee table reference that'll inspire you to look at home through a fresh pair of eyes.
"because we have instant trees we have no relationship with nature at all... it is a very manicured scenario [in singapore]. there's nothing natural about nature here. it is very green but it is a nature that is very hard to be romantic about, for me, at least." learn more about our artists' impressions and experience of this garden city in the city book by #productionq.
The City Book - Singapore will launch on 13 January from 6.30pm to 9pm at SPRMRKT Daily @ STPI - Creative Workshop & Gallery. The exhibition runs from 14 January to 21 February from 8pm to 11pm. For more information, click here.
