Thank-you @thepeakmalaysia for the in depth interview and story on the eminent and important Indonesian artist Dadang Christanto in his first solo exhibition in Malaysia. The exhibition entitled ‘M I S S I N G’ took place at our space @thegardensmallmy in Kuala Lumpur,and comprised of a monumental new installation which spanned a wall measuring 3.75(h) x 16.5(l) meters in a floor-to-ceiling installation,consisting of 110 acrylic and charcoal imagined portraits of victims from the 1965-1966 communist purge. MISSING (2018), continues the artist’s ouevre which honours the countless victims of political violence and crimes against humanity. References to the year 1965 appear repeatedly within his body of works. M I S S I N G is the artist’s form of a creative response to a story told by an acquaintance who had worked at the Tegal Province Administration office; a colleague had managed to access one of the secret camps in Tegal, and had taken amateur portraits of the alleged communists and “Soekarnoists” that had been kidnapped. These photos were developed in a dark room at their office, and were shown to only a few individuals. Christanto had always wondered if his missing father was amongst those in the photos, and has been trying without success, to access this archive. The imaginary portraits-although linked directly to the artist’s own personal experience- were created as a means to address all victims of genocide,who were never given a fair trail or whose families were never able to seek answers or justice.The work serves as a means to honour humanity -for despite all the atrocities that have occurred throughout history ,injustice against human beings continue till today.The portraits are deliberately imaginary and not attributed to any particular group for this reason.This lends the installation a Timelessness and reinforces it’s message for it lies somewhere between reality and imagination. #dadangchristanto https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=2785728358119418&id=157878490904431

Stewart MacFarlane’s ‘The Untold’ features a new suite of paintings by this celebrated Australian artist. The show continues until 15th October 2018 at Gallery B, Wei-Ling Contemporary,The Gardens Mall. Stewart MacFarlane was born in 1953 in Australia. He is regarded as one of Australia’s most prolific contemporary narrative painters, with his works in the collections of the Art Gallery of Western Australia, the Australian National Gallery, the Queensland Art Gallery, the Anderson Museum of Contemporary Art (New Mexico) and the Provincetown Museum and Art Center (Massachusetts), amongst many other respected institutions and museums. Coming from a tradition of figurative painting, his work references 20th Century figurative painters – Edward Hopper being the most prominent. Vivid, glossy and ruthlessly applied pigments tend to dominate the scenes and staged dramas exposed, with rural landscapes and streetscapes, as well as urban individuals being his key subjects. ‘The Untold’ marks MacFarlane’s fifth solo with Wei-Ling Gallery. This exhibition reflects his recent travels and experiences, and represents his transition between two continents: his home Australia, and America, where he has spent a great part of his artistic trajectory. Far from the cliché of American Dreams however, he seeks mainly within the new continent, connections and familiarity to the sparse landscapes of his motherland, Adelaide. #australianartist #figurative #stewartmacfarlane #weilinggallery #thegardensmall @ Wei-Ling Contemporary
