Free preview to the ArtScience Museum

Posted by Dawn at Monday, May 16, 2011
Managed to register for the free educators preview to the newly opened ArtScience Museum at the Marina Bay Sands. Its exciting since you know you will be one of the first ones there.





I went with my colleague and we were given free tour of the place. There was a choice between Salvador Dali or Van gogh. I let my friend choose since she was the Art Teacher. She chose Dali...which ended up a great choice as there were so many more exhibits in Dali's exhibition than Van Gogh's.


It was quite interesting as I learnt something from Dali's Artwork. There was this sculpture called Space Venus - a melted clock on the neck which tells us that beauty is finite, the body split at the midriff representing death and the egg, the symbol of life representing renewal in death.


And then, there was also this..

Anthropomorphic Cabinet with drawers again ... this time on a female form that perhaps deceives us into seeing a masculine one who appears almost as if she is writhing in pain


The above sculpture has some sexual connotations. Possibly influenced by Sigmund Freud's interpretation of images in dreams and their hidden sexual meanings. Woman losing her virginity



Here's more information about the pricing


All in all, I had a great time but for me to pay for this, I don't think I will..
