9. Paw-verbs on the Lawn

The Malay Heritage Centre (MHC), in collaboration with Japanese artist Juno of mofu_sand, brings the kucing to life in its latest installation, Paw-verbs on the Lawn. It will feature 30 of her cat illustrations as standees on the lawn of MHC, interspersed with a collection of 10 common Malay proverbs that spotlight how the cat is used metaphorically to convey different aspects of human behaviour, as well as to impart age-old lessons handed down from generation to generation.

Paw-verbs on the Lawn pays tribute to the cat, its place in Malay literary culture and in the hearts of Singaporeans, and also welcomes visitors to the Centre to learn the meaning and significance behind these common Malay proverbs, and have the opportunity to snap Instagram-worthy photos that these illustrations are already known for.

Paw-verbs on the Lawn is open to the public at MHC’s Lawn from 10 March to 30 May 2021.

You can also take part in related programmes and activities, including a performative storytelling session titled The Lure of the Feline by theatre actor, director and playwright Gene Sha Rudyn, which will explore the relationship Nusantara Malays have had with felines across the ages.

Visitors can also prowl MHC’s grounds and galleries to ‘Find the Paw-Verb!’, which will be released weekly on MHC’s Instagram page (@malayheritage) for a chance to win exclusive mofu_sand cat illustration button badges.
