Last month, Gardens by the Bay’s Flower Dome reopened to the public as part of Phase 2. Now, its other cooled conservatory, the Cloud Forest Dome, will reopen once again to the public on 6 August, ahead of the National Day long weekend, with safe management measures in place.
Cloud Forest Reopens with An Art Exhibition, A Sculptor’s Secret Garden
Gardens By The Bay’s Cloud Forest is based on the ecology of a misty mountain forest. Together with its reopening, it will be unveiling its first-ever full-scale art exhibition, A Sculptor’s Secret Garden.
This exhibition is a showcase of 16 bronze sculptures by renown Taiwanese artists Lee Kuang-Yu.

In keeping with the misty highlands setting of the reopened Cloud Forest, Mr Lee’s sculptures were brought out of his studio and garden located in the mountains of Xizhi in Taipei.
The 16 sculptures will be interspersed throughout Cloud Forest and are based on three themes: “A Quiet Respite in the Garden”, “Beautiful Memories” and “Man and Nature as One”.
Visitors to the Cloud Forest can keep a look out for them amongst the flora and greenery within the cooled dome.
This exhibition is a collaboration with Chini Gallery.
