Cubex - Explorations in Urban Overgrowth

Theatres on the Bay and Readymade Projects are presenting Cubex: Explorations in urban overgrowth featuring pioneering graffiti artist Delta (Boris Tellegen) from Amsterdam.

Curated by Putri Trisulo, Readymade Projects and Tamares Goh, Esplanade, Cubex is a site-specific public art commission developed for the main concourse foyer at Esplanade in conjunction with Bay Beats Festival 2004.

The public are invited to view the artist at work from 6 to 12 July between 1pm and 5pm daily. The exhibition is open for public viewing from 10 Jul - 12 Aug 2004 between 10am and 10pm at the Concourse Steps, Esplanade. About 500,000 visitors are expected over the 6-week duration.

A live demonstration of this scale allows audiences to understand the art of graffiti from a new perspective, one that goes beyond sub-cultural inclinations and hip hop associations, to probe deeper into the complex creative process inherent in the art as well as the artistry that has gained Delta worldwide recognition and accolades.

Cubex is the first commission of its kind to showcase graffiti as a major public artwork in prime city locations and further explores critical themes relevant to our immediate urban landscape.

Key issues such as urban renewal and development come to life in a unique sculptural installation, comprising modular wood structures, to reflect the deconstruction and subsequent reformation of a futuristic urbanscape in the artistís signature style, a blend of high-precision structural forms gone brilliantly awry to the free-flow dynamism of graffiti.

Cubex is also an opportunity to redefine the value of public space, specifically in its relation to pushing the boundaries of the contemporary arts in Singapore.

This ambitious transformation of the concourse area of the Esplanade, transcends existing conventions of usage-based functionalities rendering the public arena into an accessible and dynamic platform for cultivating shared experiences which enhances the community.

Limited edition exhibition merchandise will be sold at The Esplanade shop and retail partner Ambush, Far East Plaza.
