It’s raining cats and dogs inside Esplanade’s foyer as artist Chua Boon Kee turned the Prime Minister’s Nation Day Rally speech last year about culling cats and saving dogs into a light-hearted art installation.
Titled ‘In the Affairs of Cats & Dogs, the Government’s Involved and So Shall We’, Boon Kee’s proposal won the most votes at the Esplanade’s 13 Steps art competition to celebrate its 10th anniversary. I found the whimsical assembly of cats and dogs so adorable. Paw this way to check out the installation from 11 Oct 2012 – 1 Jan 2013.
Aren’t they just so adorable? The good news is, there’s a chance for you to own one of them! Some of the cats and dogs on display are up for adoption and you just need to email a short explanation of why you would be a responsible adopter and include your name, NRIC number, address and contact details to firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck!
