i Light Marina Bay 2017

Curation

2017 / Marina Bay, Singapore / Urban Redevelopment Authority

Following a successful edition of i Light Marina Bay in 2016, Zarch Collaboratives once again was in charge of the curation for the 2017 edition. Helmed by the Urban Redevelopment Authority, i Light Marina Bay is Asia’s leading sustainable light art festival and features a slate of diverse artists locally and from across the world.

The theme for 2017’s edition, “Light and Nature”, invited artists to pick apart the curious relationship of light with nature and the city. Artists were free to explore the phenomenology of light – natural, artificial, or even one acting as the other – against the contested space where greenery coexists with the built environment, and perhaps baggage that accompanies that contestation.
