Pictured here : Vincent Leong's "Keeping Up With The Abdullahs I" (2012), a photographic print showing a Chinese family in traditional Malay gear, poking sly fun at official royal portraits and questioning the real state of community integration in multi - racial Malaysia. It has the quality of a painted #daguerreotype and is as gorgeous to look at, as it is thought-provoking. .
Not pictured here : P prostrating herself before this work, as it was part of her MA thesis !
We've been racing around KL today looking at art, and boy... Malaysia surely #boleh ! .
Take a look at @ilhamgallerykl's Contemporary Forum, which featured this work by Edroger C. Rosili, "The Greatest View at the Similarities in Features Between the Pinnacles of Two Different Nation (Revisited)" (2016).
Fun fact : did you know that the US' Iwo Jima Memorial and Malaysia's Tugu Negara were made by the same American sculptor Felix W. de Weldon? We loved how this work made them seem like one fluid sculpture bearing a generic flag, prompting us to think about how notions of patriotism and nationalism (while inherently inward- looking) are fundamentally all the same, the world over.
"Chicken Cushion", a embroidered cushion cover inspired by the Japanese Kamon (the Chicken) designed by Nazanin Kamali. Material: 100% Wool, Includes Duck Feather Pad. $75. Now available on theArtling.com!
Kamali’s debut cushion collection launching at SCP follows a similar path, drawing upon her interest in Kamons; Japanese heraldic symbols which she became enthralled with whilst designing the interior of Brighton-based restaurant Oki-Nami in 1994.
Jeremy Sharma solo show, Spectrum Version 2.2, opens this weekend in Singapore - really exciting new series of multi-media works using image, light and ambient sounds to create fleeting moments of memory. Jeremy's work, primarily as a painter, is conceptually interesting, aesthetically beautiful and technically innovative.
Born in 1978 in Singapore he has exhibited internationally and is represented by a number of galleries. His work is placed in private and public collections including the Marc & Esmeralda Bollansee Collection. #artisttowatch
