Imagine the stories a city could tell. A busy street corner, a crumbling wall, an open window — The different stories linked to these ordinary places come from the unique experiences of individuals, and their narratives are what breathe life into the city.

ProductIon Q is proud to present the inaugural launch of THE CITY BOOK – SINGAPORE, a beautiful hardcover book containing a series of unique stories told through the perspectives of a selected group of contemporary local artists, accompanied by the creation of art works which reflect the artist’s unique relationships with different elements of the city.

THE CITY BOOK – SINGAPORE holds within it the stories of these multicultural artists, all of which reflects the diverse perspectives of culture, exploring themes including urban isolation, nostalgia, nature, and the viewpoint of living within transitory spaces.

Each artist brings us on a personal journey of life in Singapore through texts, images or anecdotes, interpreting themes from heritage to language and identity.

Packaged in a luxurious hardcover format, these stories are connected to locations through an illustrated map to provide readers with a tangible guide, allowing a dialogue to emerge between the reader and the artist as the reader navigates the city’s stories through the book.

THE CITY BOOK – SINGAPORE will be on sale from November 1 at selected bookstores. Preorder before the 31st October to receive a 15% discount and no shipping fees. Click here for details.
