great for Sculpture Square – and Singapore - to
participate in such international projects.
Eysteinsdóttir’s little wood blocks are very
unusual and quirky. Plus it’s not very often that
Singaporeans get to see Icelandic art. To most of
us, Iceland is such a faraway place!” said Ms Tay
Swee Lin, general manager of Sculpture Square.
Square is also celebrating its own 4th
birthday during this period with Subverted
Boundaries, an ongoing exhibition of
cutting-edge works by contemporary artists from
Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam in its Chapel
