The Real Estates by Jean Loo and Marvin Tang (Photo Walk)



Join us for a photo walk around the Yishun neighbourhood!

The Real Estates is a playful interpretation of a town’s geographical map – that focuses on the vignettes of life and urban streetscapes and inspires residents to rediscover their neighbourhood, where colour and stories of the community can be used to create art.

Join us as The Real Estates travels to the beautiful town of Yishun, where you will see a stunning installation featuring a rich visual tapestry of photographs showcasing familiar sights and scenes from various neighbourhoods. See Yishun in a new light through photographs contributed by the public, artist Jean Loo and her team of photographers from photo walks around the neighbourhood.

You can contribute to the installation too (no prior experience needed!) by journeying with us on a photo walk around Yishun and be thoroughly entertained as our guides regale you with juicy historical insights about the sites, an intriguing mix of the familiar and forgotten. Whether you are 8 or 88 years old, grab your camera or smartphone, and bring out the colours of the neighbourhood through your unique lenses of the town's visual landscape.

The Real Estates installation will be on display at Nee Soon East Courtyard from 10 - 29 March 2017. This programme is commissioned specially for Arts In Your Neighbourhood 2017. For more information, visit www.therealestates.sg.
