The pact was made - to set forth in search of a better future; to put down roots for a new beginning. “We are stronger together than we are by ourselves”, resounded the mantra of great things achievable through collective efforts.

The Pact, a suspended artwork commissioned for the reception lobby at The Clan Hotel is inspired by the sense of kinship that brought together the early immigrant communities in Singapore. It references a modular Chinese paper folding method called “Golden Venture”. 150 faceted panels are hung at varying heights to create an arrangement of geometric configurations. Abstracting different stages of folding, the panels come together as a continuum of the kindred spirit of togetherness.
