Across the roster of artists are a number of visual art styles, covering installation art, painting, photography, and sculpture, all of which will be on exhibit during this week-long exhibition. EQUILIBRIO starts on Tuesday, March 1 2016 and continues until March 8 2016.
An opening reception for the exhibition has been scheduled for 8pm on Thursday, March 3 2016, and it is indeed a pleasure to announce that our guest of honour shall be Angela Hijjas, well-known within the Malaysian arts community for her tireless work at Rimbun Dahan.
Angela came to Malaysia in 1972 as an Australian volunteer and then worked in town planning. She married architect Hijjas Kasturi, and they have operated an artists’ residency programme at their home in Kuang, Selangor, for the past 22 years, inviting Malaysian and regional artists to stay for periods between a month and a year developing their practice.
To date hundreds of artists have enjoyed working at Rimbun Dahan. A significant collection of works from these artists, and all made while at Rimbun Dahan, is on display at the Rimbun Dahan gallery for visitors. As well as the residency, the 14 acre garden is the only one in the world that is landscaped with indigenous SE Asian species. There are also two heritage houses, from Penang and Perak, at Rimbun Dahan, that are used for education and to accommodate residents.
