Hanging portrait– Pos Piah

I’ve often wondered where the prints go after I’ve handed them over. Some send me pictures of theirs framed up, but to visit a home where the portrait is hung in their living room, is indeed an honour and a feeling of fulfilment for the project, and maybe my subconscious personal intentions of finding family. A heirloom portrait print. This has made my efforts so worthwhile. Thank you.

IN THE FIELD– Pos Piah

Heading up to Upper Perak. Pack light #1interchange, with new print technique #MaedainKochi

“The country will never grant you sovereign over your ancestral territories. We will continue to log the land.” First few messages we heard between the fight for survival of the Temer/temiar people on the Peninsular with the current government. Assimilate or extinction. Hard survival for generations before and after. Tonight is a special night as they celebrate the last day of the advocacy program as the workshop draws to a close #Sewang ceremony. The future has always been uncertain for indigenous groups, culturally dependant on their traditional land for sustenance and cultural identity. It’s alike cultural genocide, but documented and “anthropologised”, for development.

Balai Seni Negara acquisition– Dinding Potret

My only artwork ever produced at that time, for KL biennale 2017 Dinding Potret heads off to the National Art Gallery permanent collection Balai Seni Negara. I'm glad it found a home, and would remain in the care of this Malaysian institution. Would probably be more than a decade if I would ever see it again.
