The Periphery Of The Other
Emulsion on Treated Wood, Acrylic, Metal, Mirrors / Enamel Coated Mild Steel
In The Periphery Of The Other, Faris keeps consistent with the trajectory of questioning uniformity in selected spaces. The focus at present is surveying residential estates in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, specifically those at Subang Jaya.
Creating a series from scratch at a distance, equipped with the savvy of virtual resources and relationships, Faris touches on how we can investigate the artistic tenets of space-making via looking from the outside in. At the same time, it questions how this inversion gives rise to the re-interpretation of space liberation.
Featuring a vast array of colours and mediums, The Periphery Of The Other combines facets of surface, light and social inquiry unto the artist’s trademark illusion of sparse, shared spaces.
This was the artist's first solo exhibition overseas. It was held at Richard Koh Fine Art, No. 34-1, Jalan Telawi 2, Bangsar Baru, 59100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
