Artist Statement

Back to the works, there are three historical British colonial building: city theatre (Panggung Bandaraya), Supreme Court and Masjib Jamek. Those are important architect landmarks that symbolize our nation from the beginning. The starting concept for the nation is always very perfect, smooth and pure, but when the time go on, there are getting more and more holes. The white not only show the structure of the building, but also in form of spirit where covered by digging holes, which depict the metaphor for the current political issues; or perhaps alternative, surreal, fantastic and imagined urban configurations in our future?
