Le Moment Nights: Music Night at FIVE Square

Time Out Singapore and Kronenbourg 1664 have come together to present Le Moment Nights – a series of evenings inspired by the latter’s ‘Taste the French Way of Life’ campaign, which is all about taking a leaf from the French and carving out your own slice of the good life. Make it a night to remember by having your favourite tracks reinvented by The Good Life Project, a seven-piece alt-soul act whose lush melodies are only rivalled by their infectious melodies. With appearances at Mosaic Music Festival, GLP are well poised to get you in the groove. So throw in a song request or two and hear the band give the tunes a fresh spin.

Singapore Garden Festival

Guess what? Looks do matter, even if you’re not competing in a beauty pageant. The biennial Singapore Garden Festival is proof of that, with top local and international designers congregating to show off their green thumbs. This year, expect a life-sized terrarium you can walk through, tabletop displays, show gardens and floral windows, spread over almost 10 hectares. Then end your evening on the right note with nightly concerts, and stalls hawking food, plants, as well as gardening and landscape products.

Zao Wou-Ki: No Boundaries

Is it possible to be bound by two traditions and not just one? Zao Wou-Ki believed so, and it shows in the late French-Chinese abstract painter’s works, over 40 of which feature in STPI’s annual special exhibition. On loan from a private collection, lesser-known pieces in Zao’s oeuvre – prints, ink work and paintings among them – are on show at the gallery, charting the influential artist’s career from the ’50s to the early noughties. Bold, calligraphic lines that sweep, leap and fall take centre-stage against, at first glance, a series of watercolours. But look closer, because they’re a reflection of Zao’s mastery of printmaking. He incorporates motifs of the French tradition peintre-graveurs ('painter-engraver'), with Chinese calligraphy – a true fusion of East and West. Art appreciators will also spot influences from Picasso, Cézanne and abstract expressionist Paul Klee. In 1964, the Beijing-born painter received French citizenship, marking the start of what he calls his ‘artistic awakening’. Among the techniques he employed was lithography, in which an image is drawn on stone or metal with a greasy material then rolled with ink onto a blank canvas. His paintings – they hang today on the walls of major art galleries such as the Museum of Modern Art and Tate Modern – are a showcase of his control of the calligraphy brush, each stroke channelling the temporal and spatial shifts we experience in our lives. So it’s rather apt that Zao himself saw his practice evolve over hi
