BREE JONSON: WRITHING ArtPro­jects @ The Zhong­shan Build­ing, 80, Jalan Rotan

Off Jalan Kam­pung At­tap Kuala Lumpur

Tel: (03) 2260 1388

UN­TIL JUNE 24:

This is a solo ex­hi­bi­tion of 15 art­works (oil paint­ings, sketches and in­stal­la­tion art) by Bree Jonson, a ris­ing star in the con­tem­po­rary art scene in the Philip­pines. Writhing ex­am­ines the enig­matic qual­i­ties of crea­tures such as anemones and sea urchins. The anemone’s ven­omous ten­ta­cles emit tox­ins that can paral­yse its prey, nor­mally fish and crus­taceans, which are then guided into its mouth for di­ges­tion. The sea urchin is feared for its sting­ing spines and alien-like ap­pear­ance. But these are na­ture’s de­fences against their preda­tors, like crabs, snails, marine mam­mals and hu­mans.

Time: 11am–7pm (Tuesday to Satur­day); by ap­point­ment (Sun­day). Closed on Mon­days and pub­lic hol­i­days. Ad­mis­sion is free.
