HOM Gallery proudly presents Chetak 12 third annual exhibition entitled 3rd Edition: Love Song, featuring a collaboration by Malaysian and Indonesian print collectives: Chetak 12 and Studio Grafis Minggiran. The exhibition showcases the 3rd edition of each series prints reproduced.
The theme Love Song reflects a quest to discover and explore different perceptions within a form of art close to our hearts: songs. Music and lyrics in a song have been in our lives for as long as we remember; for some of us, the lullabies of our childhood still linger in our distant memories. Looking beyond the surface, love can pose a diverse range of meaning; it is rich with questions, debates, and expressions of life. Thus, from lyrics of hopes, dreams, and ambitions, to the underlying social and political questions woven into strings of poetic words, love songs have the power to awaken passion among us. With the abundance of serenades and ballads which have graced our world today, love songs are indeed timeless and rich.
