The Writer’s Portrait Series: A Revisit Showcase is the title of local artist Yee I-Lann's latest solo exhibition and comprises 12 digital prints.
Previously shown in 2004, this series is now presented as part of a fund-raising project in support of the Malaysia Art Archive and Research Support's operational cost.
Focusing on "Malaysian Muslim Male art and cultural figures" who have influenced the artist with "their powerful and intellectually laden" writings, Yee "tries to bring forth the essence of each subject by fusing their portraits and texts," according to the press release of the gallery.
The text adds that, "as a person involved in film production sets, the artist applied her skill in composition and design, creating interesting and thought-provoking scene for each select personality".
Works are for sale from RM6,000 each and RM72,000 for a set.
The soft-launch will be held on Nov 29 at 5pm followed by a talk by the artist at 5.30pm.
