Inspired by Singapore’s prescribed relationship with happiness, we built a ‘Happy House’ comprising short films and visual pieces from 20 invited artists, alongside happy memories submitted by the community in exchange for $1. With social media constantly selling us ideas of happiness 24/7, the project is a platform to enquire and inspire where happiness can be found. Is there happiness in the pursuit of happiness today?
Happy House premiered at Singapore Art Week 2022, taking on a phygital hybrid form – a warehouse takeover at Tanjong Pagar Distripark (14 - 23 January) as well as an online Instagram vault on happyhouse.sg. It is an ongoing study into the state of happiness.
