Two figures stand in front of the museum: an elderly man holding the hand of an eager young girl. If you look carefully, you can see a third figure: a woman in modern dress standing on the second floor balconey of the museum. The girl energetically gestures to the woman, generating dynamic interactions between the figures around the building's facade. Chern's sculpture demonstrates that the arts can be relevant to generations of Singaporeans both young and old, uniting our past, present and future.
