Patients of Jurong Community Hospital

"Blossom Colours of Life" is a series of 15 fabric collage artworks co-created by artist, Tan Haur, and patients of Jurong Community Hospital, with assistance of our Friends of JurongHealth volunteers. Strolling down memory lane with the patients, the artist gathered heart-warming stories of senior participants through simple heartfelt conversations and craft sessions, and translated them into a visual journal of colourful fabric collages.

The art-making process allows patients, to revisit those nostalgic scenes of yesteryears and reminisce about their favourite food, the simple life and the good old kampong days. These stories were then stitched together to form intricate fabric collages of iconic landmarks like the former National Theatre and objects like Tingkat and rotary dial phone – each rekindling a connection between the past and present.

The pattern-rich art pieces adorn the walls of Jurong Community Hospital, bringing to life stories and experience of our share heritage and history that would allow patients to relive fond memories and be inspired with hope and optimism.
