With the support of individual donors and the community, the Asian Civilisations Museum put together a special exhibition called Body & Spirit: The Human Body in Thought and Practice which ran from 25 Nov 2022 to 26 March 2023.


It explored the themes of wellness and the wholeness of body, spirit and mind, as well as how religions in Asia understand the human body through rituals, healing practices, pilgrimage, and divine images. Featuring more than 100 objects from the National Collection, private collectors, as well as local communities, the special exhibition showcased sacred and ritual art from Singapore and the region.


Complementing the main exhibition was a special showcase titled Buddha Relics, where gems and other precious offerings, found together with the bone relics of the Buddha in the Piprahwa Stupa in India in 1898, were displayed.

Homegrown innovation company Pan-United Corporation, a global leader in low-carbon concrete technologies catalysing change in the concrete space, was behind the eye catching #SGNIGHTFEST installation at the Singapore Night Festival 2022.


Measuring more than seven metres in length, it was produced with sustainable raw materials. The Instagram-worthy installation's larger-than-life letters were 3D-printed and created with multiple layers of concrete. This is the second time Pan-United has produced an installation for the Singapore Night Festival. A strong supporter of heritage and the arts, it began collaborating with NHB in 2017.


In addition, Pan-United supported the National Museum of Singapore for the special exhibition, Dislocations: Memory and Meaning of the Fall of Singapore, 1942 done in commemoration of the 80th anniversary Fall of Singapore.


As part of Dislocations, the front lawn of the National Museum featured a decommissioned and surviving example of the AMX-13 SM1 tank, an upgraded model of the AMX-13 tank, which was part of a procession that paraded past City Hall during the National Day Parade in 1969. Pan-United supplied a special self-compacting concrete which laid the 2 layer base to support the 13-tonne war machine.
