Priyageetha Dia has gilded Singapore with gold foil, again. And a lot of people have called her urban art intervention illegal, again. But what if she and her art had been on safe legal ground all along? What if it wasn’t so clear whether the removal of her golden flags was legal or not?
Last Friday we were celebrating the official opening of our new office, arts and entertainment law firm that we are. This is the speech I gave before the party took off.
Was Priyageetha Dia’s golden staircase art or vandalism? Wrong question, in my view. Something can be both. Just that this art wasn’t.
