‘Re­turned’ is an ex­hi­bi­tion that speaks vol­umes of Malaysian artist Ru Yi Tan’s “Look East” pol­icy, de­vel­oped over the last 14 years since her move to Ja­pan. Com­pris­ing of col­lages, sculp­ture in­stal­la­tions, pho­tog­ra­phy, and film, Tan’s ex­per­i­men­tal art­works beckon view­ers to re­assess fixed ideas and sym­bolic mat­ters in the so­cial struc­tures they are tied to. This work adds to her strong forte com­pris­ing of prior ex­hi­bi­tions staged across the world, most no­tably in Florence, Italy, through the ‘Sen­sus luoghi per l'Arte Con­tem­po­ranea’ in­stal­la­tion. Let your psy­che re­act as the artist dis­sects and re­assem­bles vis­ual traits of ev­ery­day life to form new co­he­sions. Un­til March 30 at Shalini Ga­nen­dra Fine Art, Pe­tal­ing Jaya. www.shalin­i­ga­nen­
