Mythologies is a work of art by Jack Tan that explores various day-to-day Singaporean obsessions or concerns through a series of mythological characters based on the idea of the Japanese Yōkai (妖怪), or supernatural monsters. Exploring myth-making as a spatial, visual, performative and pedagogical activity, Tan presents eight new mythological creatures through a choreographed children’s lantern parade, and public installations of flags and lanterns at Singapore Art Week 2016.
In a collaborative process with Tan, the creatures were illustrated and printed on PVC cards. The LED-lighting circuitry and handles were designed to be flat-packed, together with the main lantern pieces.
