Tempatan
Exhibition ’13


KUALA LUMPUR.

PUBLIKA,
SOLARIS DUTAMAS.

  • Durian. Langsat. Duku. Nangka. Jambu and other buah-buahan tempatan (local fruits) – a popular drawing theme in primary school, is perhaps a distant and yet fun-filled childhood memory that is closely held within our heart.


    Inspired by the fruity arty moment of drawing or eating local fruits which most Malaysians share,
    Driv Loo, Ellie See, Chris Wong & Levin Teh collaborated and curated Makanlah Buah-buahan Tempatan (MB–BT) Exhibition in 2011 to promote local fruits & to rally the nation to appreciate (and consume) locally crafted art. After all, art is also one of the fruits of our homeland.

    In spite of differences, as long as they grow in our soil, it doesn’t matter what size, shape or colour they are, we’ll be celebrating the homegrown fruits. MB–BT’s intentions include supporting and celebrating local talent in art & design; homegrown creative culture, and to explore visual arts that

    are created in our own community. And the ultimate aim of MB–BT is to cultivate an appreciation for local art in the city so that upcoming artists need not always flock to overseas to seek for takers or acknowledgement.

    “Seeds are where it all begins. They promise the start of things. They’re super-concentrated sources of energy,” says Miami Herald columnist Ellen Kanner. It’s only when the seeds of art & creativity are sowed & nurtured by homegrown artists & designers; with the support from the public & patrons, the local art & design scene could develop, sustain, and flourish fruitfully.
