The ser­pent, long a mytho­log­i­cal sym­bol that spans both Eastern and Western cul­tures, is now the sub­ject of an art and de­sign ex­hi­bi­tion by lux­ury Ital­ian jew­eller Bul­gari.

Called Ser­pen­tiForm, it pre­miered in Rome last year and is on show at ArtS­cience Mu­seum in Ma­rina Bay Sands un­til Oct 15.

The tick­eted event show­cases more than 100 items that fea­ture the snake in myr­iad forms. Th­ese in­clude vin­tage dresses and elab­o­rate cos­tumes, art­works by the likes of Joan Miro, Marc Cha­gall and Keith Haring, as well as im­ages by pho­tog­ra­phers such as Robert Map­plethorpe and Peter Hu­jar.

More than 40 pieces of Bul­gari Ser­penti bracelet-watches – some of which date back to the 1960s – will also be on dis­play.

Lu­cia Boscaini, Bul­gari's brand and her­itage cu­ra­tor, said the ser­pent has long been a rich source of in­spi­ra­tion for artists and de­sign­ers. Their

cre­ations are not lim­ited by ma­te­ri­als, with some us­ing tech­nol­ogy to present the time­less cul­tural sym­bol in mod­ern and in­ter­ac­tive ways.

This, she added, re­flects Bul­gari’s spirit of in­no­va­tion and cre­ativ­ity. For in­stance, the mai­son’s Ser­penti jew­ellery se­ries has been evolv­ing since the mid-20th cen­tury, em­ploy­ing novel de­signs, ma­te­ri­als and tech­niques to keep the col­lec­tion fresh and ex­cit­ing.

Ser­pen­tiForm, which tweaks its items and pre­sen­ta­tion at each stop, will head to Tokyo next.


展出的100多件艺术品、珠宝和服饰显示,许多现当代艺术家如Joan Miro、Marc Cha­gall、Alexan­der Calder、Keith Haring、Niki de Saint Phalle等都从蛇得到灵感,创作出引人入胜的作品。就像蛇作为一个文化图腾,自古以来受到东西 多彩。

宝格丽品牌与文化遗产策展人Lu­cia Boscaini说,展出的作品全是真迹,人们在欣赏艺术作品的同时,还可体验现代科技所带来的互动乐趣。
