CONCURRENCE OF CHANCES by Faizal Yunus

 

Concurrence of Chances is a fourth solo exhibition from artist Faizal Yunus exploring the act of "making" as a self-discovery journey. The show combines 18 works into three segments: paintings and sculptures, drawing upon his practice and understanding as a trained printmaker. In his recent development, Faizal Yunus critically shapes the relation between experience, memory and automation that hinged on experimental and multimedia processes. He favours repetitious and ambiguous formation while deliberately relying on "chances" and spontaneity to take place in the making, allowing the automation of creative impulses to dictate his artistic output.

Faizal's works appear to be courting self-reflexivity, almost devoid of content, with their relatively dynamic compositions, monotonous colour palettes and tendency to reiterate patterns as a gestural mark. Deploying stencils and industrial paints, Faizal further alludes to a notion of "anti-form", emphasizing the physical correlation of artistic objects, processes, and media with the actual world. By exposing in the finished artwork how art comes into being - how materials behave and

procedures are undertaken - Faizal disclosed art's dependence on the conditions of its facture, the context of its making, and the ideological aspects of its production and reception. 

Concurrence of Chances, as the title suggests, is simultaneously hinged on the properties of materials, visualizing their intrinsic conduct and behaviour in the act of making. This suggests emancipation, a lifting of ideological weight in favour of esoteric and sensual, yet a vague note of novelty persists.

TANDA TANAH by Hafizuddin Azman


During the tail end of the 19th century, Perak was an important industrial state for tin mining but is now a relic of a bygone era full of industrial development and decadence. Located 40 kilometres southwest of Ipoh, Seri Iskandar is part of the mining area adjacent to Tronoh, the former mining town. What is left is the barren flat land and sprawling water body across the district, some abandoned without a prospect. Tanda Tanah, which translates as 'landmark', is an iteration of Hafizuddin encounter with sites and discovery of local narrative enclosing the area of Seri Iskandar. The exhibition presented 11 newly produced paintings of the inconspicuous landmark around the place – lakes, flat land, and dune.

Traversing between traditional landscape painting and symbolism, Hafizuddin's Tanda Tanah alludes to
parodical takes on the idyllic environment, a common feat in modern art. It captures the sombre, subdued, and gloomy ambiences of a sordid landscape, cast in a melancholic expression and deprived of the human presence. Hafizzudin reimagined the distinction of past, present and future by following desertion trails of humans and non-humans intervention that shaped the landscape and its surroundings. Each painting resonates with personal experiences, collected stories and events ingrained in the history, social and cultural traction of Seri Iskandar.

Tanda Tanah is a first-ever solo exhibition for emerging artist Hafizuddin Azman (b. 1994). Born in Terengganu, the artist stays and works in Seri Iskandar after graduating from Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) in 2017.
