Art in Transit: Bird Sculptures by Song-Ming Ang
Song-Ming Ang’s artwork is a series of 22 bird sculptures inspired by the thriving songbird watching community in the neighbourhood. Able to accommodate hundreds of bird cages, the area is a hive of activity on Sunday mornings, especially during the bi-monthly songbird singing competition. Ang’s bird sculptures are scattered throughout the seven station entrances and train platform, as if the birds have found their way into the station by accident.
The seven species represented in Ang’s sculptures are the most common birds kept as pets in Singapore and Southeast Asia. They include the oriental white-eye, red-whiskered bulbul, and zebra dove (known colloquially as mata putih, jambul and merbok). Commuters may also recognise the melodious laughing thrush (huamei) and white-rumped shama, as well as the yellow canary and blue flycatcher.
