    'Ah pek' to rebuild Yishun tower of toys at The Substation

    Flowers, figurines and toys are among the items that Yishun resident Or Beng Kooi hopes to use for his installation at The Substation. Yishun’s short-lived psychedelic tower of toys and knick-knacks will be making a comeback of sorts, as it will be recreated by 75-year-old resident Or Beng Kooi for an upcoming art exhibition. National Arts Council’s Young Artist Award recipient Li Xie is collaborating with Or to rebuild it as an interactive installation for The Substation’s closing exhibition “Discipline the City”.

    The bazaar is part of an initiative by City Developments Limited and Eco-Business to raise awareness of waste generation in Singapore. Just so you know, the landfill at Semakau is on track to be filled to capacity by 2035, and really, we’d rather keep the unique ecosystem on Pulau Semakau than have to use the space to store more unwanted toys. With all cash donations going towards The Children’s Charities Association of Singapore, you can be sure you’re not just saving the earth, but helping disadvantaged children in Singapore.
