Lost in time

10 May 2018 to 02 Jun 2018

Lost is the title of Thai photographer Manit Sriwanichpoom’s exhibition in Kuala Lumpur.

This series emerged from an error during the artist’s attempt to scan and digitize glass negatives of photographs taken by Liang Ewe (1911 – 1992), said to be one of Thailand’s most celebrated photographers.

The resulting “errors” appear to partially cover or distort various parts of the subjects. This supposedly creates a certain sense that these people are “trapped in another dimension”.

19 Apr 2018 to 03 May 2018

Aely’s series of oil canvas works entitled, Pasak, are said to be his explorations on various techniques in creating abstract forms.
