The Horizon is Just an Illusion is a group exhibition featuring 10 local artists; chi too, Dain Iskandar Said, Haffendi Anuar, Hayati Mokhtar, Lee Mok Yee, Sharmiza Abu Hassan, Tan Zi Hao, Viko Zhijune, Yee I-Lann and Yeoh Choo Kuan.
The exhibition is curated by Malaysian Eva McGovern-Basa who is based in Philippines.
According to the gallery’s press release, the exhibition presents recent strategies and approaches to landscape as a subject in Malaysian art.
Traditionally, landscape art has focused on the beauty of nature. However, the press release mentions the works go beyond straightforward representational observation and sociopolitical staging, and aims to embrace alternative stories, re-imaginings, myths, fragments and other souvenirs for a contemporary recollection of place.
The exhibition opens on Jan 11 at 7pm.
