PPC | 珍珠坊: A Public Living Room

The Site:
The People’s Park Complex, with its cornucopia of activity and visual clutter, has played pivotal role in the transformation of Chinatown and Singapore’s architectural, spatial and social landscape since its birth in the 1970s. Known for many firsts, including being the tallest residential space and mix-used building encompassing residential, office and carparking facilities, the Complex continues to capture our imagination, as it shapes and is shaped by the activities, movement and humanity in and around the building. 

The Exhibition:
The ‘PPC | 珍珠坊’ exhibition, aptly held at the sixth floor carpark space of the Complex, aims to respond to notions of the ‘public living room’, where distinctions between the public and private are blurred, and human intervention is juxtaposed against the sterility of infrastructure and hardware in our urban environment.

Through this new and immersive reading of the carpark and Complex, we invite audiences to reflect on and suggest alternative ways of appraising the treatment of public space, and at the same time, explore the hidden potential of parking architecture taking on a different existence.

Visual artists:
Alecia Neo // Andreas Siagian & Budi Prakosa (Lifepatch) // Bruce Quek // DEM // Ernest Goh // Geraldine Kang // Jason Lim // Nakayama Yuta // Nicola Anthony // Philipp Aldrup // Ruyi Wong // Soph O // SSYSTM // Stephanie Burt // Tang Ling Nah & Activated C Studio // TraseOne

For the first time, the Aliwal Urban Art Festival will feature an exhibition. Cannot Be Bo(a)rdered is a visual exploration of youth rebellion through skate culture. The exhibition will explore popular 20th century subcultures in new works by 16 artists/collectives from Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia. Using the skateboard as a primary medium, each work will challenge existing stereotypes by reconstructing a new narrative through different creative styles and visual expressions.


‘Can’t be bothered’ – a phrase of disinterest, that marks a sense of mischievous disregard for authority. Combined, these traits are the definition of youth rebellion, personified in the skateboarder. 

Skill, discipline, ambition and creativity in using skateboarding as a personal form of self-expression, has resulted in the sport developing its own distinct language and visual identity, recognised in youth culture as a genre in its own right.
