About

Bask in the shimmering light of National Gallery Singapore’s newest outdoor installation GLISTEN by Aotearoa New Zealander artist Lisa Reihana. At three metres tall, the striking and dazzling large-scale kinetic mural reacts and responds playfully to its surrounding natural environment, with thousands of shimmer discs reflecting sunlight, and accompanying soundscapes of wind chimes. Visitors of all ages are welcome to experience the celebratory and joyful nature of the artwork, set against the beautiful backdrop of the Gallery’s roof garden.


Drawing on the intricate indigenous weaving traditions of Southeast Asian Songket and Māori Tāniko patterns, GLISTEN pays homage to the traditions, labour and pivotal roles of Songket and Tāniko’s women weavers. GLISTEN marks Reihana’s first solo presentation in Southeast Asia and the seventh edition of the Gallery’s Ng Teng Fong Roof Garden Commission.
