8” x 6” Project II
26 October 2019 @ 10:00 am - 8 November 2019 @ 6:00 pm
Following the enormous success of the 8”x 6” project during Open Studios Penang in June 2019, the organisers are back, this time with 60 artists and creatives involved.
Each creative individual was given a piece of wood block measuring 8 inches by 6 inches, and was asked to incorporate it into their respective works somehow. The wood piece (8 inches x 6 inches) came from abandoned logs. These logs were from the trees that were uprooted in a thunderstorm that hit Penang in November 2017. The thunderstorm caused massive floods all around Penang, destruction of homes, as well as landslides that caused deaths.
The 8’’ by 6’’ Project has been a celebration of creativity and imagination, as each creative was given the exact same wood piece, but how one chooses to incorporate it into the exhibit, is entirely up to the creative individual. This particular edition is extra special as it also highlights that destruction could signify new life, a rebirth. Those uprooted trees went through many different stages of rebirth. From an uprooted tree, to a few chainsawed logs. From a log, to irregularly chopped pieces of wood. From a piece of wood to an idea. And, that idea becomes ART.
The trees have now breathe a new life, symbolizing a new beginning…
