Open Offering 1 by About to Ask

Somewhere in Kent Ridge, a tree creeps toward a precious serving of open sky. Its branches gently swoop into a footpath below, as if reaching out to the people passing by. In response, a shed was made as an open offering back to the tree.

About the event

Somewhere in Kent Ridge, a tree creeps toward a precious serving of open sky. Its branches gently swoop into a footpath below, as if reaching out to the people passing by. In response, a shed was made as an open offering back to the tree. By providing shelter, seats and mosquito repellent, the hope was that passersby would spend more time with this tree and form some kind of bond with it.

This exhibition centres around reconstructing this shed in the Art Outreach's art space, an act of re-spatializing the tree-shed relationship. This is an open invitation for others to partake in this ongoing relationship, and in the process, to share the joy of connecting with members of urban nature. To this extent, the exhibition comprises 3 main parts. The first part is an exhibition of the shed, accompanied by a showcase of the fortnightly documentation done over the course of 45 weeks. The shed’s leaf-littered surroundings will undergo a sort of recreation, with the help of willing visitors who may hole-punch “leaflets” out of cardboard. These “leaflets” constitute a base

material for the final part of the offering -- compost for the tree. The last part is a workshop held by Feelers which centres itself around drawing trees.
