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.
Curator : Badrolhisham Mohamad Tahir
