A CITY OF BOOKS

PART OF #BUYSINGLIT

ACOB1.jpg

9 – 18 MARCH 2018
BRAS BASAH COMPLEX

Welcome to Bras Basah Complex.

Here, you will find a second-hand store with wobbling towers of books, traditional almanac calendars in a Chinese bookstore and a beloved, knowledgeable art and design bookseller. What happens when 3 artists take inspiration from this space? 

A billboard for books. A set of infographic banners. A fort made out of calendars. Each tells a different story about the City of Books.

In the middle of it all, interact with the story of kid detective Sherlock Sam who is brought to life in a fantastical playground on the spiral staircase.
