Presented as an open storage and second in a series of permanent exhibitions on artist Ng Eng Teng, Sculpting Life brings together a range of works that facilitate a mapping of the artist’s history and his explorations.

The exhibition is also devised to prompt a mapping of themes and conceptual concerns of the artist. Significant among these, explorations into the human condition through an evolving articulation of the human form and their emotive potentials, and by doing so, he invests into them oblique and direct references to questions of self and identity.
