"Rukun Iman" a solo exhibition by Engku Iman

by Engku Iman

Date: 20 September, 2018 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Engku Iman, b. 1990, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Engku Iman is in your face sardonic in taking on local cultural ironies, paradoxes and colloquialisms. At just 4 years old Iman began drawing, only taking art seriously enough to consider herself a professional artist after she completed a Diploma in Architecture at Taylor’s University in 2011. It was then when Iman vowed not to contribute to urbanising her native city by becoming an architect but to be the architect of her own future as an artist. She felt that in the Kuala Lumpur metropolis, there was a distinct need for more art parks and not more high rise buildings. Iman uses her mostly monochromatic illustrations to provoke the viewer to a certain interpretation. Her chosen topic can often be an everyday, household scene, something... Read more

Stella Zhang Solo Exhibition - "Translution"

by Stella Zhang

Date: 20 September, 2018 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Galerie du Monde is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new conceptual works by Stella Zhang. The title Translution is a portmanteau of ‘transparent evolution’, which allows for the revealing or obscuring of contents held within at will. The exhibition showcases a visual reconciliation of the artist’s flickering memories and thoughts, deliberately and selectively making transparent those glimpses as they dart in and out of her peripheral vision. It is also a representation of Zhang’s progressive journey as an artist. Comprised of a new installation, drawings and 3D works, Translution is an extension of the artist’s renowned 0-Viewpoint series and a broader development in Zhang’s oeuvre. 0-Viewpoint is an outward display of the complex inner landscape mapped by the a...
