Melting Superman at Singapore Art Museum

Currently displayed on the front lawn of the Singapore Art Museum is this melting Superman aptly titled, “No One Can Save Us Now.” Created by Mojoko and Eric Foenander as part of the exhibition: The Singapore Show: Future Proof, the larger than life sculpture is there to reminds us that a superhero is not immortal after all nor is it as “super” as it is thought to be. According to Mojoko, “it’s a comment on global warming. The fact that the superhero is melting gives us little hope for the future.”

It is made of polystyrene, Plaster of Paris, and plastic paint and took three people six weeks to create.

When asked what the public’s reaction has been like Mojoko told us this, “People normally react by laughing, then taking photos of themselves in front of it, then they say, ‘It’s melting because its too hot in Singapore.’ Which is kind of the correct reaction.”

The Singapore Show: Future Proof brings together more than 35 works – including sculptures, paintings, performance art and site-specific installations – from 26 of today’s young Singaporean artists who’ve made a mark either on the streets or in galleries. The show goes on from now until April 15, 2012.
