Hullabaloo! At The Artground: Rainbow Explosion

Hullabaloo! At The Artground: Rainbows All Around

Slide down a rainbow and gaze up at a canopy of colours at Hullabaloo!, the Artground’s latest interactive art installation which is being held from 30 August 2018 to 6 January 2019.

This colourful art installation is the work of local artist Nur Aida Binte Sa’ad, 27, and was inspired by her sister Aisha, 17, who has autism.

According to Aida, Aisha had been spent a year besotted with rainbows – creating rainbow-inspired drawings and art pieces. These colourful pictures would never fail to make Aida smile and with the Hullabaloo! exhibition, she hopes to share some of this joy and happiness with others too.

Rainbows Everywhere

And indeed, Hullabaloo! is a joyful playland for children and their imaginations.

Hullabaloo Play Structure, The Artground, SingaporeAt a tall wooden play structure (parents, be sure to supervise your kids!), children can reach the top by using a rope net or climbing up some handholds.

Riding the slide at Hullabaloo!, The ArtgroundClimbing up is only half the fun because a colourful rainbow slide provides an exciting (and fast) way back down. The wooden structure also has other nooks and crannies for kids to explore.

Colour wheelA sloping “colour wheel” provides a fun spot for kids to scramble up and slide back down again.

Rainbow Tunnel, Hullabaloo!There is also a rainbow-coloured tunnel decorated with fabric hangings. The play structure provides a tactile, sensory experience for little ones to venture through.

Hullabaloo! Interactive ArtAt the Baby Stage space, colourful shapes and patterns decorate the wall while a rainbow canopy weaves across the ceiling overhead.

Triangular tentsThere are quiet spaces around Hullabaloo! too. Triangular “tents” allow little ones to hideaway and get a respite from the fantastical playscape outside.

A Celebration of Art

The Art GalleryWhen asked about her favourite part of the art installation, Aida led us to a cube-shaped pod in a corner of the exhibition space.

This art gallery showcases the fount from which the Hullabaloo! exhibition sprang forth. The Hullabaloo! exhibition celebrates Aisha’s talents and abilities, providing a privileged glimpse into her world. It is a reminder that everyone has innate talents and abilities which can be appreciated.

For Aida, who is better known as a visual artist, Hullabaloo! is her first art installation exhibition. She credits The Artground for giving her the opportunity to conceptualise and develop the installation, taking Hullabaloo! from page to stage in a short couple of months.

Hullabaloo! at The Artground will run from 30 August 2018 to 6 January 2019. Admission to the exhibition is free.
