Gillman Barracks‘ public art showcase, LOCK ROUTE, opens until 30th June 2017. Curated by Khairuddin Hori, LOCK ROUTE takes inspiration from Gillman Barracks’ address and the 24km long route march common in the training of ‘graduating’ army recruits in Singapore, harking back to Gillman Barracks’ history of being a former military barracks.

LOCK ROUTE features 16 arresting outdoor artworks by 15 world-renowned and emerging international and Singapore artists, including several new commissions. The artworks consist of site-specific installations, sculptures and murals, and visitors are invited to traverse the grounds of Gillman Barracks and experience a closer encounter with art out in the open.

The 15 artists from 9 countries featured in LOCK ROUTE are Cleon Peterson (USA), Kirsten Berg (USA), Tianzhuo Chen (China), Zheng Lu (China), Mel O’Callaghan (Australia/France), Benedetto Bufalino (France), Entang Wiharso (Indonesia), indieguerillas (Indonesia), Oanh Phi Phi (Vietnam), Maitree Siriboon (Thailand), Shahrul Jamili Miskon (Malaysia) and Acit Salbini, Gerald Leow, Sheryo+Yok and Stephanie Jane Burt from Singapore.
