Add to Calendar 22-06-2019 12:00 AM 28-06-2019 12:00 AM Kuala Lumpur Superstructure ‘Superstructure’ is a word commonly used in the building industry to denote something that is erected on or above the ground. Thus, it relates to visual art as well in the form of free standing sculptures hence the title of this selling exhibition.

The content of this show serves as an eye opener to the viewers as they observe how form when reduced to the simplest of symmetry and shape can merge the grey line between art and architecture, depending on its scale of execution. At the same time, when the viewer dwells deeper into the hidden and unseen lines that quietly shapes its geometry, the visual experience becomes endearingly therapeutic.

Scattered in this exhibition are the works of two artists. One established and the other, emerging. One, a Japanese residing in Malaysia, and the other, an Australian-trained architect born in Malaysia now turned artist based in Australia.

Japanese conceptual artist Nakayama Hitori mathematically formulated his prototype sculptures. His noted public commissions include 26m H ‘One Blue Sky’ Penang 2008 and the 30m 15m 10m H ‘Parallel Rainbow’
1989-90, Saipan Island, United States Commonwealth of Northern Mariana Islands.

Whereas paper artist Jacky Cheng’s works are intuitionally drivened and handcut on stacked archival paper.

Both artists are currently represented by Suma Orientalis.
