Little Syam, Oh&Ah by Sweii, RAW by Lina and Ummi Junid
Material Matters celebrates artisanal craftsmanship of four Malaysian artists, working in a rich variety of materials, including natural dye textiles and upcycled as well as bespoke furnishing. The four creators : Samsiah Jendol (Little Syam), Redzlina Abdul Wahab (RAW), Sweii Chong (Oh&Ah), and Ummi Junid, follow traditional craft techniques reworked to a contemporary context. The works speak to each other, placed within the open interiors of Gallery Residence, as testaments to expertise, function and beauty.
