Single channel video installation, 3min., looped 3 times.


The large installation, The Water Diviner, draws from Indian lores, history and imagery showcasing the importance of water in Indian culture. The installation is complemented by a video which uses projections of still images and transparencies to create an immersive environment "suggesting the presence of water in every life-form", the Singapore Art Museum stated.

World Water Joy : A Work in Progress - Participating Artist - Vivianne van Singer

VIVIANNE VAN SINGER
Mémoires d’eau
Ongoing project, 2016


In her new project Mémoires d’eau, van Singer performs chemical analyses of city water points- potable and non-potable. She then makes in situ interventions in the city, detailing the breakdown of the water source's chemical composition on a metal plaque, elucidating the differences between treated and untreated water throughout the city, despite both appearing to the eye to be pure and clean. These scientific investigations reveal much about the city inhabitant's lifestyles, for example drugs and medicines consumed, and primary industries performed.
