Cultural Medallion recipient Ng Eng Teng is one of Singapore’s most important artists. An avid believer in education and creation, Ng’s artworks deal with aspirational humanist themes. With numerous globes stacked on top of one another, The Explorer ambitiously represents a desire for intergalactic exploration. Unsurprisingly, with such a grand theme, the sculpture was dedicated at the beginning of the millennium, with hopes for Singapore’s optimistic future and continued progress.
