Lopung is Dead! is Pangrok Sulap’s first solo exhibition in Malaysia.
Pangrok Sulap is a collective originating from Sabah. The word Pangrok derives from a play on the words “punk” and “rock”, nodding to the rebellious nature of the collective. Whereas, Sulap is a Dusun word for “hut”, a tribute to the Kadazan-Dusun aboriginal tribe in Sabah.
The collective currently consists of 15 members. Their works are said to both amplify and detail a portrayal of Sabah and its people from a perspective that is often overlooked by the mainstream media and its typically touristic representations of the Bornean state.
The opening reception is on Oct 4 at 7pm.
