114 pieces of Night Festival artwork go missing
Artist appeals for return of a third of her installation displayed in public
Almost a third of an art installation that was displayed in public has gone missing after the opening of this year's Singapore Night Festival last weekend.
Artist Karen Mitchell, who will not be replacing the 114 missing pieces as she does not have the time or the budget, made an appeal yesterday on her Facebook page for the pieces to be returned.
"When any one piece is removed, it deprives others of enjoying the experience of interacting with this installation fully," she wrote.
Her installation, called Everyday Aspirations, was set up along the alley between The Substation and the Peranakan Museum. It was made up of 365 pieces of "words of aspirations", such as "laugh" and "smile".
