At Wisma Atria, delve into the festive season with enthralling Christmas installations, live musical performances and artist customisations, and exclusive mall promotions
Singapore, 17 November 2023 — Have an enchanting Christmas this year-end at Wisma Atria as they unveil their Christmas activations in this year’s Spellbinding Aquatic Wonderland. From 16 November to 25 December, make merry at the mall as it transforms into a spectacular aquatic realm, a nod to the iconic Wisma Atria Aquarium of yesteryears. In collaboration with students from the Faculty of Design at LASALLE College of the Arts, this year’s Christmas installations, inspired by a fantastical seascape, invite visitors to immerse themselves in an aquatic wonderland created to captivate the senses and evoke wonder in all.
Beyond the Christmas installations, visitors to the mall can also look forward to live performances, live art customisation and meet and greet sessions with several notable local artists, as well as exciting mall promotions during the campaign period.
Marine Christmas installations at the Level 2 Outdoor Space
Wisma Atria puts young creatives centre stage this holiday season with the mall’s first-ever collaboration with the Faculty of Design at LASALLE College of the Arts. Through an open call, students from LASALLE were invited to create Christmas installations inspired by an enchanting underwater world – a nod to the former Wisma Atria Aquarium and the childhood memories and spontaneous connections that were invoked in its visitors. The top seven submissions were selected to be part of this year’s festive decor at Wisma Atria.
Winning the first prize, Bae Kyungsoo from LASALLE College of the Arts showed her attentiveness to the cultural and emotional context of the public through her thorough research on people’s emotional experiences during the Christmas season. Her core motive for her work was to deliver joy and create a piece that would encourage conversations and a sense of togetherness during the holiday season. For her design, she tapped on nostalgic elements of the Old Wisma Atria Aquarium through vibrant coral structures, and by weaving in traditional symbols of good fortune. The result is a visually captivating work that evokes heartfelt memories and feelings of peace, happiness and love.
A Jolly Christmas at the Level 1 Indoor Atrium
Local fashion meets collectible art toys at the Christmas pop-up at the Level 1 Indoor Atrium from 16 November to 26 December. Curated by AMOS ANANDA, visitors can shop for exclusive limited-edition collectible figurines and merchandise by AMOS AND FRIENDS, designed in collaboration with the character IPs of several local artists such as LESDOUBLEWOOD, the force behind the popular Jelilo figurines; YANG OVO, creator of the exquisite Winter Garden paper sculptures sold in the Museum of Modern Art in New York; and SAPIEN TOY STUDIO, who seeks to use his imaginary misfit monsters to spread kindness.
These merchandise will be available for sale at the pop-up space at the Level 1 Indoor Atrium. The space will also feature Christmas-themed festive decor designed by AMOS ANANDA and the participating artists, promising a feast for the eyes.
Exclusively for the holidays, shoppers will also witness firsthand an exhibit of AMOS ANANDA’s upcoming porcelain collection, featuring singularly unique porcelain figurines and a stunning incense burner that is sure to add the finishing touch to any space.
Mark your calendars for the 9th of December as holiday festivities kick into full gear! From 3pm to 5pm, live art customisation sessions with these local artists take place at the atrium of Wisma Atria – grab the chance to snag your very own exclusively hand-painted pouch, mini canvas or tote bag from any of the aforementioned artists to add to your collection – all with a same day purchase of $25 at the pop-up itself!
