We kick started the June holidays with a big bang at the media preview of Masak Masak last Saturday. We missed it last year so everything is brand new for the kids. In fact, everything is new at Masak Masak 2015 except the 3 huge bouncy heritage playgrounds at the entrance of National Museum of Singapore (NMS). Except fun fun fun for the young and young at heart. Enuff said, let the pictures tell you more…
My favourite installation – “Flag Attack” by the students of SOTA. Ah, fond memories of my childhood. They should make these huge flag erasers cushions for sale. I think it will be a hit with the 70s and 80s folks.
“Wanderlust” is the masterpiece of American artist, Crystal Wagner. It is a landscape made of paper. I think it looks like a land of piñatas, full of surprise and wonder. What do you think?
This fascinating installation makes great hideouts and pop outs – a perfect environment for a good hide and seek game, except it’s fragile (made of paper after all) so children are encouraged to handle the exhibit with care. But frankly, which kid won’t jump and go wild in a landscape like this?
Come! Draw on the wall! Yup, you heard it right. The children are not only allowed but also invited to fill this wall with colours. The “Simple Pleasures in Life” is an installation by local illustrator, Jeanette Aw. It features a huge wall for children to fill it with colours and creativity.
This glorious exhibit is the center piece at the entrance of NMS. “Spectrum of Paper” by Mademoiselle Maurice is an installation of origami artwork. It’s flora and fauna in an explosive spectrum of colours.
MASAK MASAK 2015 is part of Children’s season 2015. It is recommended for children from age 3 to 7. Besides the playful exhibits, there are also art centered activities for kids during the June holidays.
