Mohd Ali Azraie Bebit’s Artworks:
As a prominent sculptor, Mohd Ali Azraie Bebit’s work has travelled around the country, the region and the world. His works are edgy, thought provoking and very interesting. As seen in the sculpture ‘Parasit’, Azraie uses the material to build a structure that is seen as ‘walking’ or having a foot up while exuding the elements of a robot which is supposed to be rigid. The connection of a robot with the title is a conundrum as robots are known to have no emotions while a parasite is set to come with ulterior intentions and this represents a paradox to a certain extent.
In Rangkaian Suara, Azraie move away from the usual chromatic and more monotonous colour nature of sculptures and this is where he has injected a bit more colours into the work. It is a highly creative piece where a microphone is used to depict the voice while the foot of the structure is painted with a few colours. This can be seen as a way of projected the multi-faceted nature of how sound can be represented and perceived. It is like a speaker set which projects the sound through the box but is held up by a somewhat flimsy stand.
