FTW! (FOR THE WIND!)

2013 to present

 

An ongoing research by the artist in Kampung Mangkok in the coastal state of Terengganu, where he learns to make and fly kites from Zaki 'Bual', a local master craftman. Along the way, the artist responds with attempts in developing contemporary artworks.

 

This learning process resulted in the artist developing a much deeper appreciation for craft, labour, and livelihood through his various interactions with the villagers of Kampung Mangkok and Penarik.

 

This project is made possible by the Krishen Jit-ASTRO fund.
