We met Henri & Reis who are the power behind @temenggong_art_residencies more than a decade ago. We remember them talking about this big idea to bring artists from all around the world to a residency programme where they could work on their art and then showcase it. There was nothing like it in Singapore at the time. Their vision and drive were second to none. They found supporters, donors, government backing and the cooperation of countless stakeholders to make their pioneering idea a reality. ⠀
Their patron is George Yeo the former Singapore Foreign Minister. We are photographed here with George & Jennifer Yeo and @yeosiewhua writer & Director of the 2018 neo-noir mystery thriller film @alandimaginedfilm . The film is a Golden Horse award winning film that is a result of the Temenggong Art Residencies. ⠀
They made an idea into reality because they believed in it and as some of the photos you will see as you scroll, they live & breathe art in its many forms. This time I photographed some of the beautiful Chinese New Year ready floral arrangements. Art is everywhere at the top of the hill on Temenggong Road. It’s a feast for the soul everywhere you look. 👀 ⠀
Making your ideas a reality takes more than just belief in yourself. It takes being able to build a community around the idea and then sustaining it with a continuous injection of energy. The Singapore art scene would be so much poorer without Henri & Reis Chen and the Temmengong Art Residencies programme. They are true disrupters. ⠀
