As part of Scotts Square's continuous support for emerging young talents and promoting the art scene in Singapore, the boutique luxury mall collaborates with LASALLE College of the Arts to present The Art of Reverie, an exhibition by Moses Tan, from 5 May to 3 June 2015.

Inspired by the fantasies, desires and wishes of Singaporeans collected through written cards, Moses Tan
re-imagines them through his whimsical drawings framed in circular hoops originally intended for embroidery. Moses’ works capture the desires of others and embellish their dreams just as embroidery is used to add ornamentation to personal style. Presented in an installation of vintage-inspired wardrobe shelves placed throughout the atrium of Scotts Square, The Art of Reverie is a playful and romantic union of text and imagination.

To reflect the desires and wishes of individuals that he had encountered in an earlier community work
(in which he exchanged wishes for a hand-printed postcard), Moses draws on garments and embellishes upon textiles the images that represent his artistic visualisations of their reveries.

Currently a second year student pursing a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts at LASALLE College of the Arts and formerly trained in Chemistry and Biological Chemistry at Nanyang Technological University, Moses was awarded the NOISE Singapore Award in 2014 for the Art and Design category.

Additionally as part of the exhibition, members of the public are welcome to participate in
Meet The Dreamcatcher, a fringe activity where they share their dreams with artist Moses Tan and he will reinterpret their reveries on a framed textile that they can bring home. Meet The Dreamcatcher is available on the following dates:
