ASIDE - OFFSIGHT & INSIGHT is about 2 groups of
young aspiring artists, some have already created some
marks on the art corridor walls and some are still carving
and craving. This slightly different group exhibition
shall illustrate the cultural diversity in Malaysia
by showcasing the work of 7 Malays as well as 7 Chinese
artists. Thus 7 Aside is about cross culture, about
perception stamped by heritage and origin, about interpretation,
about believes and practice.
Witness how the meaning of icons will change with the
context they are applied at, how colour schemes vary,
how motifs are shared within one group as a homogeneous
form of identification, how distinctively different
two groups of artists raised in the same country can
perceive their surroundings - and yet how their Malaysian
identity unites their work eventually.
Two teams, not competing against each other, but playing
the game for a good cause. A friendly match build upon
distinctive expressions and impressions.
