Thinking >< Space Installation Art Exhibition

Apr 6, 2003 ◄ Back to list


Five of Malaysian's top visual artists - Bayu Utomo Radjikin, Chuah Chong Yong, Ramlan Abdullah, Susyilawati Sulaiman and Wong Chee Meng communicated their ideas and concepts through installation art at Wisma Kebudayaan SGM from April 6 to 20, 2003. Installation art suggests that art is not only about objects but is also about one's experience in perceiving them. These art works are made through the creative use of the space and environment surrounding the subject matter.

The five artists exhibited a total eight works. Dato' Hon Choon Kim, the Deputy Minister of Education opened the exhibition on April 6.

In conjunction with the exhibition, a forum featuring on installation art was held on the same day at the International Conference Hall of Wisma Kebudayaan SGM. The forum was chaired by Rahimie Harun and featured the five artists who exhibited in 'Thinking><Space'.
