Anne Samat's first solo exhibition entitled Sultanate in the Eye, Monarchy at Heart will feature eight works from her Freedom series, which comprise wall-mounted mixed media sculptures as well as installation works with free-standing sculptures.
In search of new textures, Anne substitutes the traditional with the contemporary – she employs yarn, polyester and rattan sticks instead of the conventional silk and cotton, injecting a new identity to an art form often mistaken as craft.
The exhibition opens on Aug 9 at 5pm.
