The Singapore showcase is themed Figments, Fictions and Fantasies. It reflects the common thread among the four artists to explore myth, imagination, illusion and altered realities in their works, which arose from their responses to the Pavilion site and the notion of the carnivalesque in Venice - the ultimate City of carnival and dreams.
