Rediscover Telok Ayer

Once a settlement along the coastline, Telok Ayer is closely interconnected with the notions of arrival and identity.

Come experience the artistic confluence of cultures and histories at 'Rediscover: Telok Ayer' which features contemporary artists Shirley Soh, Hazel Lim, Dylan Chan and Sarah Lin. Together, they uncover tales of the area drawing on former residents’ memories and historical accounts to produce site-specific artworks that engage with the space it occupies. Journey safely through the trail of artworks without leaving home and see how these artists have interpreted the tales of Telok Ayer.

This initiative was project-managed by students from LASALLE’s BA(Hons) Arts Management programme in collaboration with the Urban Redevelopment Authority.
