Made "Redhill: Dying for a good idea" for Tian Tian Xiang Shang Exhibition, 27 July 2017

Kenneth Paul Tan was invited to create a visual artwork titled "Redhill: dying for a good idea", as part of the Tian Tian Xiang Shang exhibition curated by Hong Kong artist Danny Yung.


"In Singapore of myth and legend, a hill was stained by the spewing blood of a boy who was killed by the soldiers of a desperate and insecure Sultan jealous of his rising popularity. What had the boy done to deserve this? He had offered an unconventional yet simple idea that enabled his terrified village to repel successfully the attacks of deadly swordfish by lining the shore with banana tree trunks. Everyone's just dying for a good idea. - Redhill - "
