Handwoven Tapestry Inspired by Singapore’s Landscape History

“Return to a lovely dream” has been created by Alexandra Kehayoglou in 2019, and on display at Hermès Liat Towers. The artist is known for her handwoven tapestries that capture the beauty of nature and native landscapes. With this series, she has been invited to create a unique installation that celebrates Singapore’s identity as a Garden City. Exploring the relationship humans have with nature and our surrounding landscape, Kehayoglou “took inspiration from Singapore’s landscape history – a city built alongside mangrove forests”, as she explains on her website. She was “captivated by the beautiful chaos of unedited nature found at Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve: a greenery so lush that one loses track of time and place”.
