Melted vases, deformed bottles and a crooked drink packet stand on a precarious network of furniture.

The installation, titled Imperfection, is one of 81 art pieces fashioned by prison inmates in an exhibition - The New Horizon - at the Singapore Art Museum.

The pieces represent the inmates' desire to leave behind their old lives and strive for a new one.

The exhibition is on from 10am to 7pm, Saturdays to Thursdays, and 10am to 9pm on Fridays, until Dec 27.

Admission is free for all Singapore citizens and permanent residents.
