My thoughts about this,
we weaved into each other
sharing in the light.

Through thoughts and actions
from each our disciplines
bring meaning to such...

Changing, adapting,
constant tweaking to better
making sense of this...

Single space, the stage
through time, light, sound and movements,
interlace as whole.

Live Origami!
Idea of flat sheet paper
Narratives be told...

Through paper crumpling,
Captures movements of dancers
Sculptures in moments!

Imagine in life,
still moments in each of us;
Intertwined within!

Young Malaysian Artists: New Object(ion) II

01 October - 30 November 2013 . Galeri PETRONAS . Kuala Lumpur . Malaysia

SeaCreature 13 by Lisa Foo exhibiting at
Young Malaysian Artists: New Object(ion) II

Artist Statement: Lisa Foo

As I am concern with the speed of materials being formed and sometimes neglected or wasted,  I create installation sculptures with materials from everyday mundane objects like plastic drinking bottles, paper, latex gloves, LED lights, that we often given amiss of their quality;  its banality and its throw-away nature. In my creative experimentation with found objects, I am seeking for that transformation of the unexpected into art and beyond.

Medium: PET bottles, cable ties, LED lights

YMA II is an exhibition initiated by GALERI PETRONAS to celebrate young artists. New Objection is a collective effort to create artwork that are free from any form of restrictions, regulations or barriers. It aims to explore new creative abilities in the hope of discovering new art idioms or vocabulary. Using the combination of modern techniques, these artists manage to skillfully maneuver the traditional aesthetic concepts while highlighting the meaning of their artworks.
