to Dec 7



What would you say to an innocent child who has literally never seen the world?

Bhumi Collective is delighted to present the Singapore premiere of Charlie by Victoria Chen, after two successful runs at the Edinburgh Student Arts Festival and the On the Rock Festival in 2017.

In a world rife with all sorts of upheavals, twelve-year-old Charlie has spent virtually her entire life within the confines of a sterile room. She has been brought up to believe that there is danger beyond her room, and that the world has made a sacrifice for her to remain safe where she is.

The time has finally come for Charlie to meet the world and discover what really lies beyond the only four walls that she is familiar with. We invite people of all creeds to spend fifteen minutes visiting Charlie in her room. How would you explain the complex realities of a world that she has never been part of, or responsible for creating?

Charlie looks forward to meeting you between 20 November to 7 December 2018. To book a visitation slot with her, please proceed to

Bennett Bay Album Launch - "In Memory Of"

Bennett Bay, backed by a 17-piece band, presents a concert launching his sophomore full- length album In Memory Of.
Marking a significant return to his post-rock roots, the album was conceived as a dedicatory album for a friend of his who passed away five years ago, and is aimed at reconciling notions of grief within those who are experiencing it.

In Memory Of follows the journey of a young persona, who has been travelling the world after the loss of his last loved one. He stumbles upon an ordinary town, and it is in this town that his journey out of grief begins, leading to his acceptance of his loss and the assurance he makes to the world around him—that he would live a fulfilled life in the name of the people that have touched his life and he has lost, as well as for the sake of the world around him.

Bennett Bay is currently in the final stages of recording for
his second album, and will release it on the 9 September 2018 at a launch show at the Esplanade Recital Studio.

Mosaic Associate Artists are exceptional musicians at the forefront of their genres, whom Esplanade has committed to providing tailored, intensive support.

Tickets can be purchased at for $28. Concessions for students, NSFs and seniors: $18.

  • 19 Jalan Mas Puteh Singapore (map)

Kitsch ornaments, asian soap opera DVD sets, overrated music albums and tattered second hand books. Objects from a bygone pop era yearn for someone to bring them into the future.

Taking place at a novelty store in Clementi, Singapore, Everything but the Kitchen Sink serves as a part-exhibition, part-clearance sale. Embracing a maximalist approach to art-making, sculptures, prints and video works blur themselves into the noisy ambience of shophouse life. 

Come down to the shophouse to bargain and buy objects in need of renewed life!


Opening hours:
28th & 29th July (Sat, Sun)

4th & 5th August (Sat, Sun)


Aki (b. 1995) is a visual artist currently based in Glasgow. Their practice revolves around recognising the friendliness and personalities of objects ... (the loved, the queer, the abandoned)

Ryan Ben Lee (b. 1997) is a moving image artist based in Singapore whose practice utilises video art, installation, GIF-making, sampling and (re)animation to create a range of media assemblages.


Both Aki and Ryan will be in the space together on 28th July 2018, 2-7pm.
