© kult / kitto

as part of the launch edition of creatory, an exciting new festival which celebrates the many talents of singapore's thriving creative community, kult magazine pitches in with a quirky event of its own. held on aug 23-24 at a multi-level disused warehouse space in a suburban part of town, it presents the frankenstein freak show, an exhibition inspired by mary shelley’s classic grotesque creature. on display will be a wide range of frankenstein-inspired portraits, created by 24 leading artists from around the planet. from wildly bizarre to the grotesque, these larger than life portraits will be showcased in a new exhibition format that includes a collab with imaginarts. this creative agency has built a massive frankendoll in the space, in addition to another technologically savvy collab between an artist and a 3d printing studio. the aim is to bring one of the art pieces to life. and that's not all, folks. a pop-up bar concept will be hosted by potato head folk’s studio 1939, and which will be featuring two unique cocktails. be there or be square! location: 37 mactaggart road [geylang].
