Embargoed till: 7 November 2003
10 ‘current generation’ Malay artists invite you to a Ramadhan fast breaking buffet on the dusk of 14 November 2003 at The Substation on 45 Armenian Street.
This buffet is part of Berita Harian, an exhibition curated by artist Khairuddin Hori and co-presented by The Substation. Berita Harian, translated Daily News, is a rare presentation of young and active practicing Singaporean Malay artists. These artists will put forward their explication of news and issues persistent, current and significant through their various genres of practice.
Amongst the works showing at Berita Harian are; ‘ReDiscovery Channel’, a computer generated ‘animation teaser advertisement trailer’ by Ridzuan Saari, ‘DE-stress kapa’, a site-specific de-stressing sound installation in The Substation’s toilets by Zulkifle Mahmod and ‘Window Shopping’, a CCTV installation showing real-time events inside various pockets of The Substation by Harman Hussin.
As clichéd as any gathering of Malay artists can be, Berita Harian however promises to be a landmark event in the history of local art development. This is also the first time that 10 current generation contemporary Malay artists are working together on one show. The exhibition provides a chance for the public and the local art community to view the opinions, statements and psyche of this ‘current generation’ of contemporary Malay talents.
Witness Berita Harian because it is NEWS on current state of contemporary Malay art.
