EDITIONS is an SGFA developed project, bringing together artists from to consider the art and medium of multiples in both serial and unique forms.
‘Editions’ in the traditional artistic context brings to mind reproduction – think ‘prints’ or ‘photographs’. This project explores broader practitioner implications of ‘Editions’application, including video, prints made unique through added techniques and also, traditional prints made by hand.
Haris Abadi, Pohon Beringin.
EDITIONS features both artists whose practices are directly influenced by the consideration of multiples, and artists whose current works are unique, including: the partnership of Talha KK + Tsa Meera of Imaginary 23, who recently directed Kyoto Protocol’s latest music video Delta Wing; the wonderful, 222KM series by Mahen Bala that captures the historic railway stations on the West Coast of Malaysia, soon to become a historic memory.
Haslin Ismail, Jelmaan Baru.
Veteran art photographer, Eric Peris’ handprinted silver gelatin works of the Tin Mine Landscapes (as published); edition artwork on tables by Nowornever Design, a creative and experimental design hub; video and digital canvas works by award winning Haris Abadi, whose work has consistently revolved around the role of the internet and digital media in modern life.
Joining also are artists whose current practices are not steeped in the consideration of multiples, such as eminent Sri Lankan talent, Sujeewa Kumari, whose specially commissioned Threading Tales series features recomposed vintage images on canvas, embellished with the artist’s signature thread work, creating beautifully unique canvases out of a traditionally repetitive photographic format.
Finally, the XYZ Brick Organ Pavilion, the fourth edition of SGFA’s PavilionNOW project, designed and constructed by the dynamic young firm, XYZ Design, to serve as an interactive architectural feature at Gallery Residence for contemplation and celebration.
SGFA Gallery Residence is located at 8, Lorong 16/7B, Section 16, 46350, Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia. Phone: +60 3-7932 4740
