Does artistic licence extend beyond sacrilegious realms?



Today I was mildly offended by Dawn Ng’s Walter after visiting the Singapore Art Museum (SAM), the former St Joseph Institution.

I was fond of the rabbit installation when it was installed at 8Q SAM. But I was a bit offended when I saw the familiar inflatable rabbit lying in the centre spot on a platform which was the former site of an altar.

Does the artistic licence extend beyond sacrilegious realms? Where is the line drawn on such matters?

God – A Condominium Salesperson?


“You shall not take the name of the LORD, your God, in vain…”
Exodus 20:7

In recent months, the Singapore property market has slowdowned with Q1 sales numbers plummeted to their lowest level since the 2003 SARS epidemic.

However to celebrate a fully sold commercial development with invocation of God (see the enlarged version linked to the above image) certainly leaves a questionable impression.
