WALTER: ADVENTURES OF A CURIOUS COLOSSAL BUNNY
Singapore’s favourite bunny WALTER is hopping to Marina Bay on his next adventure around the city! There will be lots of exciting activities during the month including a photo art exhibition describing his curious adventures, Rabbits 101 by the House Rabbit Society, exciting bunny story-telling sessions and a mobile library, free HP photo prints with WALTER, children’s art sessions at Marina Bay Link Mall and more! Visit www.marina-bay.sg/walter for details.
WALTER is local artist Dawn Ng’s pet project involving guerrilla installations of a curious colossal bunny who pops up across Singapore’s standard landscape of flats and heartland enclaves. By using Walter to create and photograph scenarios packed with surprise and wonder, Dawn draws attention to commonly overlooked and over familiar spaces across our landscape, while dodging cops and people with no sense of humour. WALTER is a celebration of our ordinary by helping us look at this city as children again.
