First Generation

Made up of a group of five boys jumping into Singapore River, the sculpture shows the lighter side of everyday life around the river in the past. This playful activity was a common sight in the early days of the river, now surrounded by luxury hotels and towering corporate buildings. Chong’s sculpture acts as a reminder of simple pleasures, and shows how much daily life and surroundings in Singapore have changed over the years.

這個雕塑由一群五個男孩組成,跳進新加坡河,顯示了過去河邊日常生活的輕鬆一面。 這個有趣的活動在河流的早期很常見,現在被豪華酒店和高聳的企業建築所環繞。 Chong的雕塑作為簡單快樂的提醒,展示了多年來新加坡的日常生活和環境變化。
