Shafiq Nordin X Nik M Shazmie
30 Sept - 14 Oct 2023
G13 Gallery is pleased to present BETWEEN WORLDS, an exhibition showcasing artworks by Shafiq Nordin and Nik Shazmie that reveal the artists’ perspectives through their reinterpretation of pop culture and iconic figures. These characters get a makeover to the point where they become self-referential, popping up in various settings, social commentaries, and even political contexts.
Even though Shafiq Nordin and Nik Shazmie have different backgrounds, their handling of these characters takes them on unique journeys. Shafiq is all about sharing his experiences in his new life phase, the post-marriage world, and how issues like politics can influence life decisions, all through these characters. On the other hand, Nik Shazmie is more focused on current issues in the art world and the world in general. It’s like they’re playing these characters as a doll to play their thoughts and ideas onto the canvas.
BETWEEN WORLDS runs from 30 September to 14 October 2023 at G13 Gallery.
