The other day after the movies I took Ben across to the National Museum of Singapore for a quick look. We didn't have time to look at the Mozart Exhibition, but I thought it we could find something of interest in the free galleries.
And of course the first thing you see even before you even walk through the front door is the huge David Sculpture in the main atrium. Done by Indonesian artist Titarubi, it totally dominates the space and is quite a focal point for little children.
I love the way the artist has covered this iconic image of ideal masculine beauty with a very feminine brocade fabric. The delicate swirls and flowers soften his muscles and confuse his gender identity. He becomes a camp figure posing in front of the mirror! It also brings him into comtemporary culture, and for me this is brilliant.
