From 29th to 30th September, head on down to one of the newest art spaces in the Klang Valley as the Studio by The Spacemen will be hosting a show entitled This Is How I Steal It 2.0. Its cheeky and somewhat mocking title might spur the curiosity of many in this show that will exhibit poster works from a group of emerging artists.
The exhibition is curated by Bok Tjuv and Richard Chua which looks at the word stealing from a different and very innovative perspective. While it is often associated with negativity, the curators have taken the word to a new level which comes with a certain level of freshness for creativity.
Essentially, This Is How I Steal It 2.0 continues where it left off in the first and it looks at how ideas and structures are conveniently stolen and then made to be an original piece of work. This is often regarded to as an original re-creation and it is in this grey area that the show is all about. There are quite a number of works that are exhibited and sold at the show involving 29 poster designs.
The artists involved in the show give their own interpretation through their own environments which stemmed from their own imagination and creativity. The works are channelled through the artists own visualization like the set of 4 poster series by Shazwan Taib, the set of2 poster series by Aaron Tan which are his interpretation of Calvinos Invisible Cities, a Kurokawa Kenta poster, Yuwen Ongs The Story and Jun Yuen Lims Mr Sun Bear, among many others. The posters are for sale and they are priced at RM50 per piece which also include the Jun Kit poster which ws made using paper cut-out and Chinese ink of 2 hands forming a diamond shape based on the batik print technique.
