Moonlight Fragment by Fendy Zakri

Head over to Taksu Gallery in KL to check out Fendy Zakri’s solo exhibition, “Moonlight Fragment”. The pieces are representations of the artist’s individualistic views of nature — specifically, the sun and the moon. The series sees geometrical lapses of the moon with solid colours, interspersed with marking and tracing techniques that enable the viewer to move between the different hues and to view them as an individual fragment.

A Group Exhibition: Rasa Sayang

This group exhibition brings together an entourage of artists in conjunction with the one-year anniversary since the exciting 14th general election in Malaysia. The cast of artists is a large one, featuring works by Azizan Paiman, Chang Yoong Chia, Sharon Chin, Chong Kim Chiew, Intan Rafiza, Okui Lala, Liew Kung Yu, Pangrok Sulap, Phuan Thai Meng, Manit Sriwanichpoom, Tan Zi Hao, and Yee I-Lann, while the participating writers and poets include Arafat Hambali, Bernice Chauly, Samantha Cheh, Faisal Tehrani, Ann Lee, Carmen Nge, Dr Serina Abdul Rahman, Dr Vilashini Somiah, Yvonne Tan, and Zikri Rahman.

Rasa Sayang does a playful and humorous take on the 14th general election through film, installation, painting, performance, photography, and more. These are used as a gateway to respond to sociopolitical concerns along with the emotionally turbulent experience of belonging to significant social protest movements such as the Bersih rallies.
