Artist Statement

In 6th June 2021, the iconic colonial restaurant Coliseum Cafe is closing its doors permanently due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. This pre-war heritage building was opened in 1921 in Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman in the heart of the city centre, and this historic eatery that served Hainanese Western-style cooking and colonial-era food.

The Coliseum Cafe KL had weathered many significant milestones and stood tall throughout the British colonial rule, the Japanese occupation, Malaya’s Independence, the formation of Malaysia and the Millennium. However, unfortunately it could not celebrate for the 100th anniversary.

As a child, I used to visit here and having many good moments. furthermore, it was always a treat to see smartly dressed waiters with an old nostalgia feel to it.

The Deluge, an overwhelming amount of water (something in general), or symbol such as time, people, development, question. However, in particular in 2020 it means a wave crisis of Covid-19 pandemic.

I always desire to recreate the experience of looking at a landscape or a horizon, observe the people, activities, behaviours happening on the land, and also attaching political context approaches in the Artworks.

The Artworks are about the changes, how Malaysia’s government collapsed, how Malaysia’s business collapsed, and how people’s life collapsed in two years.

There is a poem about the backdoor government:

With his emotions for her inscribed on the paper

Love and hate; Joy and anger

It slips out of his grasp into the void

Be upon a fate they dare not avoid

Reaching out

The fear of losing it

Stronger than the fear of falling into the darkness beyond

She reaches out to him despite their diminishing bond
