LASALLE Exhibition

In this exhibition, Zaki Razak, artist and Lecturer in Visual Studies at LASALLE, reflects on possibilities for integrating art within teaching and family life. What is an ideal household? What would a family-centric art practice and exhibition look like?

For the exhibition, Zaki turns the gallery into a notional home divided into three areas: a kitchen, a living room, and a bedroom in which visitors are invited to rest. A public programme of events with collaborators who have been integral to Zaki’s practice over the past decade explores the role of these areas in family and artistic life. Events include workshops for families facilitated by Keelat Theatre Ensemble, a conversation with artist Amanda Heng, and a cooking show by Zaki’s mother Salamah Buksen, where she will prepare a family recipe for the Malay dish semur tongkol.
