My linocut illustrations for Zedeck Siew’s LOCAL FAUNA stories are part of this exhibition about public and private space.

There are ten stories, each telling of a fictional animal endemic to Southeast Asia. They’re presented in English and Malay, with Burmese translations by Myanmar-born poet/artist Maung Day.

We pasted posters of these stories and their illustrations in public spaces around Jalan Pudu, Kuala Lumpur. Here’s a map of the locations – 7 are at bus stops, 2 at a bus terminal and the final one is in Sekeping Sin Chew Kee, the exhibition space. Click on the red markers to see thumbnails of the illustrations.

About the exhibition:

Making Space: We Are Where We Aren’t is an exhibition that reflects on our increasingly privatised urban condition. Each work intercepts a different aspect of space to disrupt our dichotomies of private and public, leading to questions about privatising space as a means to freedom.
