Mi Casa y Migration’s Breath at Gillman Barracks

From the archives of my phone, this was a day spent at Gillman Barracks, a concentration of art galleries in Singapore. It was my first time to the place since it was relaunched as a contemporary art center in 2012.

Our first stop was to Mi Casa (My House), Carlos Rolon/Dzine’s inaugural solo exhibition at Pearl Lam Galleries. It’s an over-the-top interpretation of the culture of excessiveness in his home, which frankly beckoned to me with all its shine and kitsch. I love things like that!

We migrated to Ota Fine Arts at block 7, where we viewed some of Rina Banerjee’s poetic titles on some very disturbing pieces in Migration’s Breath:

Norwegian breakfast with eggs benedict wrapped in salmon and asparagus, Banana shake at Wild Honey, Singapore.We ended the day with a yummy Norwegian Breakfast at Wild Honey, an all-day breakfast place full of nomz. Ottie really wants to go back again but we haven’t had the chance yet.

My museum outfit. Spiral staircases are a remnant from the olden days in Singapore. It was pretty cool to find one that I could climb in this old neighbourhood:
