The Real Estates by Jean Loo (Photo Walk)



Join us for a photo walk around Bedok neighbourhood!

The Real Estates is a playful interpretation of a town’s geographical map – that focuses on the vignettes of life and urban streetscapes and inspires residents to rediscover their neighbourhood, where colour and stories of the community can be used to create art.

Join us as The Real Estates transposes from Toa Payoh in March 2016 season to another beautiful town – Bedok, where you will see a stunning installation featuring a rich visual tapestry of photographs showcasing familiar sights and scenes from various neighbourhoods. See Bedok in a new light through photographs contributed by the public, artist Jean Loo and her team of photographers from photo walks around the neighbourhood.

You can contribute to the installation too (no prior experience needed!)- by journeying with us on a photo walk around Bedok and be thoroughly entertained as our guides regale you with juicy historical insights about the sites, an intriguing mix of the familiar and forgotten. Whether you are 8 or 88 years old, grab your camera or smartphone, and bring out the colours of the neighbourhood through your unique lenses of the town's visual landscape.

This programme is commissioned specially for Arts In Your Neighbourhood 2016.
