The Everyday Vinyl is a site-specific, public art vinyl installation that occupied a 100m walkway from City Hall to National Gallery Singapore. It was commissioned as part of Light to Night Festival 2022 from Jan-June 2022 by the National Gallery of Singapore.
The installation ruminates on the hyperobject of plastic, concentrating in particular on the ubiquitous vinyl.
In re-appropriating and collaging unwanted vinyl, the resulting tapestry prolongs the lifespan of these otherwise single-use disposable materials and reimagines them as art.
We scavenged these vinyls from two sources. Firstly, local printing companies that have rolls of misprints and test prints. Secondly, from local arts initiatives ending their exhibition or showcase run.
The afterlife of the work is currently in discussion, with possible framing of the vinyl artwork upon de-installation.
