We are here. is a group exhibition featuring new and selected works of four female artists, namely, Bibi Chew, Minstrel Kuik, Nadiah Bamadhaj and Tetriana Ahmed Fauzi.
The title of the show links narratives that surround the human condition and its role in shaping individual identities and a nation.
According to the gallery's press release, the selection of works provide a certain viewpoint from a domestic setting and society at large.
Bibi Chew examines the course of building boundaries through cut-outs and collages. She returns to an earlier installation work from 1996 to continue her dialogue on identity and origins.
Nadiah Bamadhaj expands on conflicts surrounding religion, power and governance through a polyptych of her monochromatic, charcoal collage.
This work is accompanied by a new video recording, completed during her recent participation at Asia Contemporary Art Week in New York, this year.
Minstrel Kuik tracks the passage of time through her photographic print series and charcoal drawings. The works are said to juxtapose the past and present. Apparently, her practice records historical moments in Malaysia that shape national and cultural identity.
Tetriana's practice concerns her personal space which is the home, studio and office. She does mixed-media drawing, digital prints and paintings on objects.
The opening will take place on Dec 6 from 5pm-8pm.
