Esplanade invited many artists whom they have presented over the years—and who have grown with them—to respond to the theme of 'These Sacred Things'. They asked them to describe what is sacred to them at home (be it their immediate home environment or Singapore at large) and reflect on the notion of sacredness.
The works span a wide range of mediums, including paintings, drawings, sculptures, ceramics, videos, installations as well as site-specific works and indefinable mediums. Together, these contribute to a tapestry of diverse visions, ideas and textures that is rich in meaning.
