The Door III: Initiation

The Door III: Initiation

Exhibition: 19 April - 3 May 2014

Opening: Saturday, 19 April 2014, 8:30pm

The final episode of The Door series features Arikwibowo Amril, Hisyamuddin Abdullah and Shafiq Nordin. The exhibition, The Door III: Initiation gears the artists' views of the world through their struggle for identity and individuality in the face of globalization. It sees a more focused conversation than previously shown in their exhibits in The Door and The Door II: Plight. The works engage their personal and social concerns,gaining from their strengths and developing their weaknesses as they progress.The artists draw broadly from a wider scope of influences from the internet and their surroundings to address everyday issues: exploitation, fear, social landscape and cultural trends.The Door III: Initiation would showcase works of various mediums in painting and sculptures.

The Door III: Initiation hopes to set the stage for the ones who withstood the previous The Door exhibitions upon graduating in 2012. All three artists completed their B.A (Hons) UiTM Shah Alam and are currently based in Selangor.

The exhibition in HOM Art Trans will run from 19 April – 3 May 2014. A reception will be held on April 19th with the presence of the artists.
