 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。

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.
