The Substation presents "SeptFest 2004: Artists & Other Animals"

Category : events

A Visual Art Show, Forum & Fair - free admission for all sessions. Details at the webpage.

In collaboration with focas (Forum on Contemporary Art & Society), this project seeks to initiate what is hoped will be an ongoing dialogue between environmentalists, animal groups, artists, theorists and interested public about the ways in which human-animal relationships are imagined, represented and performed in the region.

Regional Animalities Part I (Visual Art Show) at the The Substation Gallery, 1-5 September 11am - 9pm daily. A five day, video, sound, performance and philosophical exploration into our everyday relationships with meat and the killing of animals for food, by Zai Kuning & Yuen Chee Wai.

Regional Animalities Part II (Visual Art Show) at The Substation Gallery, Blue Room and Garden, 11-26 September 11am - 9pm daily. Official Opening 7pm, 11 September 2004. Artists from Singapore and Malaysia explore various aspects of human-animal relationships. Besides raising awareness about specific issues, they explore ways in which animals provide raw materials for our symbolic order, our dreams and urban imagination - putting pressure on the boundaries between animals and humans.

Humanimal Forum at the The Substation Guinness Theatre, Saturday 11 September: 3 topics/sessions between 10am-12pm, 1pm-3pm and 4pm-6pm. A lively dialogue with over twenty invited scientists, artists, academics, activists, TV & media workers & public personalities; see details here.

Humanimal Fair & Small Animal Adoption Drive at the The Substation Garden, 11 September 3pm-7pm. Hang out in The Substation Garden with animal and conservation organisations to music by Zai Kuning, EMOT, Yee Chang Kang and UBlues.

Kranji mangrove cleanup ops planning

Category : events

The planning for the Kranji-Buloh mangrove section of the International Coastal Cleanup Singapore began a few weeks ago but things are heating up now. The core team meeting in the Raffles Museum to plan operations are figuring things out as they go along - it will be their first time running the show, but they have had enough help and most of them are actually old hands.

The lower part of the image below is from the Kranji mangrove cleanup in 2001, which introduced large scale cleanup operations at Kranji mangroves. The arrowed heads are those off (L-R) Victor, Hua Qin and Angeline who were at the planning meeting with Cheng Puay in the library, sorting out allocations, calling up coordinators to finalise plans before the briefing over the next two Saturdays followed by the actual cleanup itself.

They are all part of The Next Generation that are beginning to run many operations these days!
