Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Fashionable Life -

Cen­tred on the Patani re­gion, of prov­inces Pat­tani, Yala, Narathi­wat, and parts of Songkhla, ‘Patani Se­masa’ is an ex­hi­bi­tion that in­ves­ti­gates and presents the com­plex his­tory and cur­rent hap­pen­ings in that ge­o­graph­i­cal area. Fea­tur­ing the var­ied voices of 28 con­tem­po­rary artists—many of which are from the re­gion it­self—the ex­hi­bi­tion is an im­por­tant mix of per­spec­tives, de­vel­oped in re­sponse to the re­li­gious and po­lit­i­cal con­flict hap­pen­ing there in the past 13 years (20042017). Suhaidee Sata’s Sym­bols of Vi­o­lence 11 utilises guns made of co­conut shells to re­veal his re­ac­tion to the vi­o­lence that has taken a toll on the civil­ian’s lives while Kamee­lah I-lala’s se­ries of face­less brides, trig­gered by the as­sas­si­na­tion of grooms due to cul­tural dif­fer­ences, is equally as haunt­ing. Un­til July 15 at Il­ham Gallery, Level 3 & 5, Il­ham Tower, 8 Jalan Bin­jai, Kuala Lumpur. Tel: 03-2181 3003.­ham­
