Enough?

In our world of excess, is anything truly ever enough? This exhibition by Adam Zainal and Lim Li Wei explores quality, quantity, demands, and expectations. Under the quality and quantity segment, viewers will see the collection of artefacts from Adam’s grandfather, Shahrum Yub, who collected over 200 objects thanks to his idea to have a Malay World Museum.
Meanwhile, in the demand and expectation segment, Li Wei looks inwards to his identity and relationships with the things around him. The use of everyday objects placed in uncomfortable and awkward positions creates a tension, beckoning the question: what do we do in situations like these?
