„Mendekati visual - Daily little Prayers“ is an installation out of drawings and photos. I have been documenting specific moments/ experiences i have had here during my stay. As i was interested in getting to know „typical forms“ of Malaysia today (a society which is famous for its diversity) i was trying to collect for me obviously specific moments and impressions which can be described as reflections of todays present here. My exhibition also seeks to reflect on some conflicts that modern societies always have: For example the demolition of nature which is obvious due to the high development speed going on in big cities as Kuala Lumpur for example is.
The documentations in form of photos are translated into a little screenplay out of drawings on a Chinese silk paper role that will be shown more as an object in the art space. On the walls the motives from east coast batik fabrics are drawn with Chinese ink. There was the moment when i was a witness to the death of fishes in a river that belongs to a village nearby KL etc. The viewer is invited to see my perspective.
