Art in Transit: “Tree of Memories” by Koh Hong Teng
‘Tree of Memories’ showcases the memorabilia of people and things that left their imprints before and after the construction of Springleaf MRT station. Using a banyan tree as the main anchor, the artist surrounded it with a juxtaposition of buildings, imaginatively interpreted characters and artifacts taken from the unique blend of nostalgic shophouses and lush greenery around Springleaf estate. Making the artwork a study of integration of the place, people, nature and the spatial connection between them, ‘Tree of Memories’ is a whimsical composition that invites the busy commuter to wonder into a familiar yet enchanted, magical world amidst their transit.
