Collision Violence is a group exhibition featuring three artists. Amirul Alwi (Malaysia), Radhinal Indra (Indonesia) and Tomi Heri (Malaysia).

The exhibition is said to provide a taste of how diverse Southeast Asian Art can be.

Amirul Alwi is touted as having an obsessive interest for math and number. His mixed media wall installations often derive from mathematical patterns. Amirul's works in this exhibition is said to explore the idea of the universe, and its contents, being made of energy. Supposedly, it is an old concept that derived from quantum mechanics, of which recent experimentations have shown evidence of. Amirul incorporates the use of math and geometry to create visual represeantions of chakras.

Radhinal Indra's fascniation towards celestial bodies is said to be a key componenet in his practice. The works touch on the cross-cultural universality of this sense of enchantment and wonder, as well as how our existence here on Earth is closely linked to that of the known universe.

Tomi Heri based his works on recalling experiences from memory. A bikepacking trip with friends from Kuala Lumpur to Malacca serves as the subject matter for his work. Tomi sees the recollection of memories without any aid as a means for him to push the boundaries of his creativity.

The exhibition opens on Jan 29 at 8pm.
