It's official, guys!!! We're going to @georgetownfestival next month!!! More updates on workshop & sharing sessions to come in the following days.
•• GERIMIS is a collaborative art exhibition and archiving initiative that explores Orang Asli (OA) narratives through the reconstruction of spaces and the coming together of various OA contemporary artists, photographers, and weavers.
They are contemporary artists @shaqkoyok_art (Temuan), @ramlankoyok77 (Temuan), and @lenymaknoh (Temuan); digital artist @vickyeluq (Semai); photographers @jefreesalim (Orang Seletar) and @john_aku (Semai); partners Persatuan Kebudayaan dan Kesenian Orang Asal Perak and Seletar Cultural and Arts Society; and Temuan weavers of the Kumpulan Kembang Sejambak from Kampung Paya Rumput, Selangor.
Exploring the story of the land, what happened to the people that lived there, and where they are today, GERIMIS collectively documents OA shared history, practices and changing adaptions of culture and community via a series of artworks, photographs, zines, and installations.
With support from INXO Arts Fund 藝件事, Krishen Jit Astro Fund, and Hai-O Arts & Culture Grant. Special thanks to Gerai OA, Persatuan Kebudayaan & Kesenian Orang Asal Perak, Seletar Cultural & Arts Society, and weavers of Kumpulan Kembang Sejambak from Kampung Paya Rumput, Selangor.
