Hiromi Tango, ‘Lizard Tail’, 2016-2017, Singapore Art Museum (SAM)

Lizards can be found in a wide variety of environments, and most lizards are well known for their ability to shed their tail when in danger, distracting predators while they make their escape. Immersing participants in a colourful and interactive soft-sculpture environment, Hiromi Tango shares tales of adaptation and survival based on the metaphor of the lizard’s unique ability to regrow its lost tail. Brought to life with performances and art-making workshops, 'Lizard Tail' explores the powerful potential of art-making as an agent for healing, as well as mental and emotional development.
