Singapore Youth Festival (SYF) Art Exhibition 2021

Students from P2 to P6 took part in the different categories working on the theme, “Artist & Technology” where student artists reflected on how technology has impacted their lives.

The SYF Art Exhibition will be showcased online via the SYF website from 3 July to 31 December.
This year also marks the first time that the exhibition is using immersive 360-degree virtual technology where the selected artworks will be set against a digitalised backdrop of gallery spaces within the National Gallery of Singapore.

Artist Statement
We love our school pond as much as Claude Monet loves his water lilies. We want our water lilies to be ENORMOUS to attract GIANT dragonflies to our school garden, and we want a unicorn too.

Teacher Mentor’s Comment
The little artists were fascinated when brought on a virtual museum trip to Musée de l’Orangerie to see the paintings of Monet’s Water Lilies. They were awed when their own artwork was brought to life with Quiver, an Augmented Reality app. It excites me to witness how technology can make art this interactive and engaging for the little ones. - Ms Candy Chua

Artist Statement
Our work is about how Singapore has developed from past to present – from a fishing village into a bustling city, from tiny kampong units to tall HDB blocks. Technology has made it convenient for us to keep in touch with our family and friends. We should be grateful for what we have today.

Teacher Mentor’s Comment
Digital art started off as a big and foreign term to the pupils but they were excited and gamed to try it nonetheless. The pupils grew and learned to support one another through drawing, conceptualising each scene, and filming. They build on each other’s strength to create this piece they are so proud of!

Artist Statement
Technology has become an essential part of people’s lives and sometimes it controls them unknowingly. The diorama depicts a scene of a family having dinner, sitting in a complete circle, leaving a space for the younger daughter. This is an example of how technology has taken over our lives and threatens family togetherness and communication.

Teacher Mentor’s Comment
The pupils wanted to create awareness that technology could be a useful tool in our daily lives but it could also be otherwise. They tried to create a typical family scene where technology could disrupt the harmony within the family. The pupils were excited and enthusiastic when doing the diorama and tap on each other’s experiences. – Mdm Azizah
