The Sculpture Society is the first society in Singapore, dedicated to nurture public appreciation of sculpture as an art form. Established since 19 May 2001, it is a non-profit organisation, which is active in advocating the artistic development of its members through exhibitions, workshops and symposiums. The society was formed by a group of passionate individuals who were keen to enhance the artistic development of the art form through a tightly knit community of artists. Led by Han Sai Por, one of Singapore’s foremost sculptors, the founding members set their minds to provide a platform from which artistic discourse can flourish. To date, the society has over a hundred members. Amongst them are prominent and renowned local artists, as well as emerging young artists, who work in multidimensional fields of sculpture. Their works have gained both local and international exposures.

In 2021, SSS celebrated its 20th anniversary through a series of four exhibitions with the grand theme of Re-THINGing Sculpture in Singapore and explored the current state of sculptural and three-dimensional practice in Singapore; in 2022, the theme of its exhibition was set as “Rekindle”, to celebrate the end of the pandemic crisis and nudge its members forward: to be reinspired, to re-spark their creativity, to rekindle passion, to explore unfamiliarity: from artistic directions to style, from methods to materials used.
As a continuation of its effort to create an environment conducive for its members to continue to create better artworks and achieve greater heights, Sculpture Society (Singapore)’s 2023 annual show, is titled “Seek” (寻 in Chinese); this is a follow up from our previous two years’ annual exhibitions. SSS aims for this exhibition to be a timely reminder for our members to continue to seek, as they create new artworks.

The sustainable light festival will return for its 9th edition to showcase new and exciting light art installations at Marina Bay.
For this edition, we continue to invite artists to explore various forms of Sustainability and Sustainable Living - of environment, economy and culture - and examine how light art can create conversations about our lifestyles, decision making and the community.
The curatorial theme of i Light Singapore 2023, A New Wave, calls for innovative light art installations that encompass associations with the colour blue – the limitless potential of technology to create novel experiences beyond the physical, and the synergy between nature and technology.
A New Wave encourages creative methods and ideas that reflect the energy of blue to inspire connections in the city, refresh people’s senses and immerse visitors in new realms.
