From September 2017 to April 2018, Singapore played host to Spanish artist Manolo Valdes’ first venture into showcasing in Asia, a sculpture exhibition titled Manolo Valdés in Singapore.
Vicinity Studios produced a 3-part video series, covering the hefty overnight assembly of the sculptures at Orchard Road, the invite-only official launch at Opera Gallery and hyperlapse of the displays at the exhibition’s more permanent home – Gardens by the Bay. The studio also managed photography coverage when the sculptures were moved to Gardens by the Bay.
Using cinematic videography, the videos induced the grandeur and prestige of the event, taking the audience behind-the-scenes during the construction, building a crescendo to the launch day itself before concluding with the hyperlapse of the sculptures in the context of its exhibition space at the Gardens.
