DECAYEDJUNGLE
a group exhibition by S?&K!&Y?

“decayedjungle”, comes from a theoretic metaphysical concept of being in between states of existence, a transient space where objects are put in a state where it is neither functioning nor decomposing, serving as a tangent part of a whole. This tangent space is represented by site-specific installations within a few spaces of abandon, selected based on the properties and aesthetics of the location and its surroundings.
The constructed theory is then applied to the elements that surround the theme of urban living, whether it be development and demolition, acceptance and alienation or even production and destruction.

Along the city centre, three artists collaborate as a unit to create installation works that embody and interact with forces that come and go within this metaphysical property. These locations with constructed artworks serve as a field of attraction, through its reaction and interaction with the surrounding forces, it display the somewhat ritualistic processes which occur between states of existence.

As an exchange, they collect sounds, objects, documentation and retranslate them into different forms in the exhibition space, as a means to complete the transmission of forces from one space to another.

The first part of the exhibition will be at Lostgens’ Contemporary Art Space, and the second at Moutou 無頭體 Artist-Run Space.

展覽 “decayedjungle” 源自 “在架構之間找不到棲息地之存在” 的形上學構想。在轉瞬的時空裡,物體存於一種懸置的狀態,即無法發揮本色,亦無法被分解,成為了體系中的偏離之物。這個偏離的時空以裝置藝術結合數個城市內的廢棄空間為元素,並在廢棄空間的選擇上考量了其位置及環境的特殊性。

偏離時空的構想接著延伸至圍繞著都市生活的議題中,無論是發展與拆遷、接納與異化、 抑或是生產與毀滅。沿著城市中心,三位藝術家聯合而為一,在帶有玄意的空間創作作品,讓寄居在空間中的無形能量得以彰顯,藉作品为媒介與那些來了又去的無形能量互動。空間因放置了作品而擁有特定的引力,通過作品與無形能量的互動,得以示出發生在狀態之間帶有儀式性色彩的交流。

作為交換,三位藝術家收集廢棄空間的聲音、物件及作品紀錄,將它們轉譯成各種型態,展出於展覽空間內,从而完成一個空間至另一個空間的能量傳遞。

展覽被分為兩個部分,第一部份在 Lostgens’當代藝術空間展出,第二部份則在天台的 Moutou 無頭體藝術家自營空間裡展出。

Exhibition : Games and Politics




Games and Politics is an interactive exhibition by the Goethe-Institut, in cooperation with ZKM | Center for Art and Media, which has been touring worldwide. The exhibition features 18 significant politically-ambitious video games, and encourages viewers to examine how they each unfold their unique political potential.

The selected games cover a wide range of political and social topics. The political aspect of these games becomes visible to the players either directly as they make decisions affecting social groups and economies to win elections (Democracy 3), or indirectly as they witness social injustices such as precarious labour conditions (Sunset), the treatment of refugees (Escape from Woomera) and address gender issues (Perfect Woman). The games also lead the players to confrontations with the surveillance state (Touchtone) and the consequences of armed conflicts (This War of Mine). Adopting the characters of often-marginalized people, players experience limited possibilities and negative sanctions through both the characters and the game play.

Visitors can also view an introductory film about political games and short documentaries about some of the games. The accompanying exhibition catalogue provides background information on the unifying concepts of these independent games.

During the exhibition period several programmes are going to be implemented: Live Playthroughs, Public Lecture, Documentaries, Workshop and Panel Discussion. The particular times and dates will be announced on individual Facebook events https://www.facebook.com/goetheinstitut.malaysia/ and on our website https://www.goethe.de/ins/my/en/ver.cfm?fuseaction=events.detail&event_id=21258772

Encounter ~ solo exhibition by shiro masuyama 増山 士郎




































Oh! ‘Rupanya’ Cinta Itu Bunga. Solidarity Festival, Art, Artivism, Collectivism.


















Photo credit  Sim Hoi Lin

‘Oh! Rupanya Cinta itu Bunga’, adalah sebuah idea tentang keterlibatan Seni, Aktivisme
dan kolektivisme khususnya di Kuala Lumpur dan Selangor. Berdasarkan keterlibatan ini,
sejak dari tahun 1998 sehingga kini, secara personal mahupun berkolektif, berkesenian
telah memberi kesan yang besar terutamanya dalam perkembangan Politik, Sosial,
pendidikan dan sebagainya di Malaysia.

Bermula tahun 2004, berterusan giat berkolektif di sekitar Shah Alam. Kami merupakan
sekumpulan pelajar dan seniman bergerak atas nama ‘Komuniti Jalan Kempas’ di ruangan
studio Jalan Kempas, Seskyen 3 yang aktif sejak tahun 2000 sebagai ruang latihan muzik,
berkumpul dan bekarya bersama. “Salah satu fokus utama komuniti ini adalah memerhati
dan mempelajari bagaimana sesebuah organisasi berfungsi, Jadi komuniti cuba
membentuk cara berorganisasi yang baru dimana, setiap kerja dilakukan bersama, tanpa
ada hieraki dalam organisasi dan keputusan yang diambil melalui konsensus. Pemilihan
nama ‘komuniti’ juga cuba menunjukkan yang ia bergerak secara komuniti dan terbuka,
dimana setiap orang akan dikira sebagai ahli komuniti jika mereka aktif bersama
membina aktiviti (open group).” KJK 2004

Pelbagai aktiviti dan acara telah di laksanakan sepanjang 2004-2006, terutamanya
keterlibatan Seni Aktivisme dalam merespon dan menyentuh isu semasa. Musik dan Mural
antara platform utama kami dalam berkegiatan dan juga sebagai medium penyampaian
yang berkesan dalam usaha menggabungkan kumpulan dan individu lain supaya bergerak aktif
dan bersuara dalam membangunkan serta memasyarakatkan kesenian.
“Ini adalah satu reaksi terhadap permasalahan dan kekurangan yang dirasakan berlaku
dalam amalan seni lokal. Secara khususnya, komuniti ini cuba menginjak satu pendapat
dengan pembentukan ruang alternatif (konsep ruang bukan fizikal) yang cuba
mengorganisasikan dan membentuk acara dalam ruang seni yang secara semulajadinya
tidak mendiskriminasi. Ia juga merupakan satu reaksi terhadap ruang setempat yang
tidak proaktif dengan aktiviti seni walaupun ia begitu berpotensi atas faktor-faktor
tertentu. Komuniti ini cuba menjadi penggerak ataupun pencetus idea dan digerakkan
bersama-sama dengan komuniti lain yang berkongsi idea yang sama atas dasar
perkembangan seni, kesedaran, dan perubahan positif.” KJK 2004

Lanjutan dari kesedaran itu, dalam penciptaan ruang alternatif, bergerak secara indipenden
dan bebas berkesenian telah tercetus dalam memberi gerakan terhadap perkembangan
seni setempat. Dengan semangat aktivisme, berkolektif memberi nilai yang interpersonal
dalam berinteraksi, berkreativiti dan beraksi bersama setelah hampir 20 tahun, seiring
dengan Pergerakan Reformasi di Malaysia.
