This exhibition, in collaboration with the NTU Museum & NTU community is a fine showcase of sculptures and furniture that combines art and functionality created from seemingly fragile and common materials. It also serves as an excellent example of upcycling for environmental sustainability. We hope that this exhibition will inspire visitors to also put on their thinking caps and think of innovative ways to re-purpose materials into beautiful and longer lasting objects.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION

One of the most intriguing aspects of contemporary art installations lies in the interesting and innovative ways ordinary and everyday materials are altered and reworked into various forms and mediums by artists. Bartholomew Ting’s (fondly known as ‘Bart’) unusual beginnings as a cardboard sculptor was a result of an incidental work experience in a company supplying cardboard. Surrounded by an abundance of supplied, Bart was inspired and he used them to create hi first set of sculptures, Thinking Hands. He has not stopped creating since.

This exhibition presents Bart’s Thinking Hands in collaboration with students from the NTU community. It is a fine showcase of sculptures and furniture that combines art and functionality created from seemingly fragile and common materials. Thinking Hands – in literal sense, sets us thinking beyond the usual use of materials and encourages innovation in re-purposing materials into beautiful and longer-lasting objects. Bart’s work also serves as an excellent example of upcycling for environmental sustainability.

Please take your seats, relax and enjoy the exhibition. Fret not, interactions are most welcome. Who knows, inspiration might strike!
