On the island state of Singapore live giants. These utopian constructs – massive structures built post-independence – sought to shape civil perfection. Born of architectural, political and social ideologies these buildings exist today as a backdrop to the human scale. How did Singaporeans appropriate these projects? What does it mean to walk among these giants?

On the island state of Singapore live giants. These utopian constructs – massive structures built post-independence – sought to shape civil perfection. Born of architectural, political and social ideologies these buildings exist today as a backdrop to the human scale.

How did Singaporeans appropriate these projects? What does it mean to walk among these giants? How can we navigate a diversity of utopias?

Through this exhibition of poetic and surreal streetscapes photographer KHOOGJ examines the truth of urban existence on ground level. As bodies negotiate surfaces and movements call for variety, the textures of the everyday are here presented.

This exhibition was created in direct conversation with Equatorial Utopia: 50 Years of Visionary Architecture in Singapore presented at the Maison de l’Architecture Genève. Both exhibitions explore the thematic of idealist constructs built on the unique tropical island of Singapore.

Where Equatorial Utopia presents a historical and researched overview of project design, Spaces Between Giants questions authentic textures and challenges constructed paradigms.
