Hold your judgements at a mixed-media presentation of death penalty cases
A newly formed collective - GroundZ-0 (founded by Singapore artist Zelda Tatiana Ng) has resurrected a slice of the National Gallery Singapore’s recent history through a mixed-media presentation that leads audiences on an interactive tour that retraces the steps of defendants in some of the country’s most notorious criminal cases.
While most know that the gallery is housed under the combined roofs of two of Singapore’s most distinctive colonial-era buildings — the former Supreme Court and the City Hall — many may not have realised that before its present incarnation, the former was Singapore’s highest court where many of the country’s most shocking criminal cases punishable by death were brought to be tried.
Through multilingual performances based on some of Singapore’s shocking crimes, Ground Z-0 invites audiences to step into the shoes of all parties involved in every death penalty case — victims and their family members, death row inmates and their families, defendant lawyer, prosecutor, prison warden and witnesses — as they walk along a route leading from what were former holding cells for defendants, to the courtroom.
