Amazing Art Installation ~ My Alleyway Memories: Once Upon A Longtang by Red Hong Yi

Hey 👋🏻 all, SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 would like to urge you all to visit this not to miss quaint alleyway-inspired art installation at the National Art Gallery (NAG) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 🇲🇾 from now till 22 March 2023, 9️⃣am to 5️⃣pm daily

It’s 🆓 admission, let’s go 😃

Actually SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 got to know about this amazing art event earlier, however due to year end & CNY festive travelling, so she delayed her visit to it until very recently 😁

Personally, when she 1️⃣st stepped into the art space, she got amazed with the scene with freshly-washed laundry (Actually old used clothes, check out more via 🌐 https://www.instagram.com/p/CjkA8f1ANwz/ ) fluttering in the breeze on bamboo structures & just like she was back to the once upon a time 😊 Yes ✅, it’s all done up by the famous local Malaysian contemporary artist, Ms Red Hong Yi 👩🏻‍🎨 & her amazing team 👏🏻👍🏻

~ My Alleyway Memories: Once Upon A Longtang ~ It’s an art installation with a 6️⃣m tall bamboo structure & 8️⃣ hanging canvas artworks each painted with burnt red calligraphy paper ❤️🖌️

SiennyLovesDrawing got impressed how the brown burning effect created the unique art feels 👩🏻😍🤩, it requires patience & dedication details effortlessly in this creation of art senses, bravo 👏🏻

Do check the artworks up close to notice some cured ducks, sausages & even fish being hung with the laundry, that’s the exact scene that Ms Red Hong Yi remembered from her stay at Shanghai then

It’s Ms Red Hong Yi’s 👩🏻‍🎨 1️⃣st artwork that being given such a prominent platform at a major Malaysian art institution ~ NAG Malaysia 🇲🇾 She is an internationally acclaimed artist with a visually captivating showcase of art made from everyday objects including tea bags, flower petals & eggshells etc. with several impressive do-it-yourself projects created

This is now formed part of the NAG’s “Single” series of exhibitions & it features scenes from old alleyway houses or longtang residences which were built in Shanghai, China 🇨🇳 from the 1840s to 1940s

Ms Red actually lived for 2️⃣ years from 2011 to 2013 with her granduncle & grandaunts

This offers the art gallery visitors a glimpse into the relationships that are important to Ms Red Hong Yi 👩🏻‍🎨

Also an invitation to revisit the fast-disappearing tradition of longtang houses as the old makes way for the 🆕 in Shanghai, China 🇨🇳

Alleyway houses combine both Chinese & Western architectural styles & are built side-by-side along narrow interconnected passageways. Ms Red 👩🏻‍🎨 looks back fondly on her time living there, describing life in a longtang compound as noisy, messy & intimate. She further explained that you would see locals gathered in these cramped alleys, chattering & gossiping about their children or grandchildren. Vendors would sell vegetables or second-hand items on mats. In the afternoons, residents roll up their sleeves & cook, hand-wash laundry or play mahjong with their neighbours

Do check out her storytelling in this IG reel via 📹🌐 https://www.instagram.com/p/CnMgm1Ygstr/

With longtangs quickly disappearing in the face of modernity, this art installation attempts to address impermanence, tradition & urbanisation. It’s also the Ms Red’s 👩🏻‍🎨 way of preserving her personal memories of these alleyways & local residents by making art inspired by photographs 📸📸 that she took while living there. “I wanted to use my art to tell more personal stories of places & people who are important to me. I wanted people to see 👀 & feel the relationships I had, & maybe even experience the people & places that I love ❤️ in a way that I love them. says Ms Red 👩🏻‍🎨 , who left her career as an architect to be a full-time artist in 2014

“I hope my story will encourage you to dig into your own heritage & roots you never know where it may lead you

I also hope it will get people to think about what we have today, & to cherish places & relationships we have today because everything will change eventually.” Ms Red reminded all 👩🏻‍🎨

So, if you’ve yet to visit this art installation ~ My Alleyway Memories: Once Upon A Longtang ~ , SiennyLovesDrawing urges you “Must go”, absolutely worth your time 💯👍🏻

Let’s support local artists 🙌🏻👏🏻👍🏻 & got inspired by Ms Red Hong Yi 👩🏻‍🎨

She ~ Live With Passion ~ in her art creation without paintbrush ❌🖌️

INYALA 2022 Celebrates Sustainability, Humanity & Progression In An Immersive Art Exhibition

Updated 9 Dec 2022, 8.20am

Yeah‼️ SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 has witnessed the official launch of  iNYALA 2022 immersive art exhibition recently to celebrate the sustainability, humanity & progression. Her LinkedIn photos album via 📸📸 https://www.linkedin.com/posts/siennylovesdrawing_inyala2022-artexhibition-sustainability-activity-7006772294345773056-sE7t

While she stepped in to the Ground Floor (GF) Atrium of Fahrenheit88 Mall, she was impressed 👩🏻🤩😍 with how it has transformed into a luminous space of cubes, squares & pixelscape 🟥🟦🟧🟨🟩🟪 from now until 25 Dec 2022 for the iNYALA 2022 immersive art exhibition

 Centered on the theme of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the latest iNYALA art exhibition showcases a total of 17 multidisciplinary digital artworks which invite audiences to contemplate Malaysia’s 🇲🇾 progress in achieving balanced human, social, economic & environmental sustainability through a combination of data, visual, sound, space & light💡

Date: NOW till 25 Dec 2022 , yes ✅, Xmas day 🎅🏻🎄

Time: 🔟am to 🔟pm

Venue: GF of Fahrenheit88 Mall, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 🇲🇾

It’s 🆓 admission to iNYALA 2022

✨ ~ Enter The World of Cubes ~ Beyong Light ~ ✨

As the progressive platform dedicated to art, technology & sustainability, the iNYALA 2022 is brought together by an interdisciplinary group of industry professionals, including 🆕 media artists, music composers, architects as well as audio-visual, communications and creative specialists, in collaboration with the local students from Universiti Malaya, DASEIN Academy of Art, Multimedia University & Han Chiang University College of Communication. In addition to the entries submitted by the students, the exhibition will feature works from both international & local artists such as Kaoru Tanaka, FabU & Jun Ong. A 1️⃣-minute unique multimedia show curated by Kaoru Tanaka, FabU and LIE, involving all 17 art installations accompanied by sensuous sound, will be staged at the start of every hour to present an audio-visual experience which conveys the message of unlocking a world of beautiful possibilities when all interlinked SDGs are met

“This year’s theme serves as the holding space for our audiences to pause and reflect on the development & progress our country undertook, particularly on SDGs, as we emerge from the pandemic. I hope the whole 🆕 format of iNYALA which dives into generative art will inspire dialogue and enable Malaysians 🇲🇾🧑🏻‍🤝‍🧑🏻👭🏻👬🏻👫🏻 to imagine different ways of thinking & doing to transform the world we live in,” commented Mr Helios Loo, Founder of iNYALA 👨🏻‍💼


Spanning over 3,392 sqf, the iNYALA 2022 🆕 media art exhibition brings to life the idea of an immersive world 🌎 made of technicolour cubes, symmetrical shapes & boundless digital artworks. The show consists of 17 cube installations with live media art mapped onto the digital canvases, creating a vivid field of visual spectacle overlapped with imaginative soundtracks curated by award-winning music 🎖️🎵🎶 production company ~ Inner Voices Productions, allowing the patrons to fully immerse themselves with real-life data which reveals the past and present of pressing topics in Malaysia 🇲🇾



● “GLOWING PLANTS” by Kaoru Tanaka. SDG Goal 12 Responsible Consumption & Production. Beautiful & delicate plants always heal and light us up. Just as plants are generated by the sun 🌞, carbon dioxide & water 💦, so are the things that humans produce. This digital artwork seeks to reflect & reimagine how human production in the face of impending climate change can transform through methods eg. sustainable manufacturing which utilises natural materials as part of the possible solution

● “AMORPHOUS” by Tan Sher Lynn, FabU. SDG Goal 17 Partnerships For The Goals. Fascinated by the grotesque yet strangely beautiful aesthetics of the microbes, the installation is an attempt at recreating these natural phenomena digitally. Perhaps we humans can learn from the behaviours of these minute organisms that resemble biological computers & how they influence each other, forming efficient networks similar to that of mathematically generated patterns. By making the invisible visible, we could engage in a deeper understanding of our relationship with microbes & the communities around us

● “VIVID DREAMS” by LIE. SDG Goal 17 Partnerships For The Goals. Goals without action are just dreams. More than just a statement, SDG is a continuous effort to achieve a better & sustainable future. We bring the statement to life by recreating the icons of the Sustainable Development Goals in the form of abstract motions. The rhythmic movements of the lights represent an ongoing journey to keep moving toward the goals & continuity of the dream that everyone can achieve in solidarity for a sustainable future

● “TILL THE GREENS ARE GONE” by Si Ying. SDG Goal 15 Life on Land. This artwork is created to address the 15th SDG – Life on Land. It showcases a visual passage of colours & shapes from the outskirts to the city centre 🌇🌆 Along the passage, there will be a gradual transition of scenery from the lively organic greens to the grey hard dead tones of the high-rises. The colour data are collected from pictures of deforestation & construction work taken in Kuala Lumpur & Selangor

● “PIXELS” by Jun Ong: Jun designed the artwork installation & spatial experience of iNYALA 2022. The installation is itself an object & also a dynamic framework. Using a modular system, the framework made from organic cardboard together with the digital art installations are reimagined into a meandering pixelscape that allows storytelling & data to be visualized through different scales & dimensions. From afar, the glowing installation can resemble a geological terrain while up-close reminds one of the dynamic façades of cities. The entire spine anchors itself on the ground through a large, spatialized pixel that allows visitors to experience the insides of a pixel

SiennyLovesDrawing as a go green & sustainability supporter truly impressed with how art creative & innovation applies on having sustainable in mind. All the cardboards used with no print on it so all can be recycled after the exhibition ♻️✅👍🏻

Staying true to its mission to make sustainability core to artmaking practices, iNYALA 2022 has adopted innovative approaches to prioritise environmentally-friendly 💚 exhibition design & construction with 75% of the materials used for the show being organic, refurbished & recycle-able ♻️✅ in a bid to avoid single-use disposables, reduce wastage & overall carbon footprint

 This art exhibition is being created out of 2️⃣ main components ie. The LED panels & cardboard where the largest cube installation is made with more than 300 used LED modules collected across the city while the latter is a humble, non-chemically treated material made from paper pulp

The iNYALA 2022 is spearheaded by Helio Media, in collaboration 🤝🏻 with Filamen. It’s supported by Tourism Malaysia & Yayasan Sime Darby. This latest art exhibition is made possible by Fahrenheit88, Co-labs Coworking, NovaStar, Nextrend, De Carton, LIE Design, Inner Voices Productions, Jun Ong & RUBIX



●  “CarbonBubbles” by Iwani Binti Muhammad Izhan of Multimedia University. SDG Goal 13 Climate Action. As Malaysia 🇲🇾 continues to be a car-based society 🚗🚘, this artwork illustrates the increasing amount of global greenhouse gas emissions from private transportation. Different cars are shown to be affected & affecting others as emissions continue to rise & pollute our environment

📸 https://www.instagram.com/p/Cl3Fmcmpsk6/

●  “Not a Dream” by Group MMUTB of Multimedia University (Muhammad Khuzairi Bin Mohamad, Teh Poh Leng, Lena, Tang Efaye, Ray Lee Zhe Yen & Akiff Rahman). SDG Goal 06 Clean Water & Sanitation. Animating the long process of dirty to clean water 💦, the artwork unpacks issues related to water quality, affordable access to drinking water & how it is affected by insufficient sources of clean water & poor water-related ecosystems

📸 https://www.instagram.com/p/Cl3shzlpqNo/

●55100/221126″ by Blankmalaysia of University Malaya. SDG Goal 08 Decent Work & Economic Growth & Goal 13 Climate Action. 55100/221126 is the continuation of Blankmalaysia’s series of digital work in 2022 that explores the fluctuating urban landscape, past/future memorial sites & the costs of development to the environment & the bodies involved in it. Malaysia 🇲🇾, being a postcolonial country, has been transformed by waves of migrants since the 19th century. Today, Malaysia’s commitment to Agenda 2030 for sustainable development seeks to promote economic growth with social inclusion & environmental sustainability promises a 🆕 era of transformation. Although the data shows GDP growth, the emissions caused by rapid development continue to rise.  This artwork hopes to create public discourse on the cost of economic growth at the expense of migrant bodies & our ecology through the juxtaposition of archival images & personal field work of present developments/ forgotten spaces

📸 https://www.instagram.com/p/Cl5C3FCJJYp/

● “1 Movement 0 Execution” by Ammar Hazman Bin Rosli of Multimedia University. SDG Goal 13 Climate Action. The artwork will explore modern natural disasters that have resulted from man-made consequences & the action that people took as a result of the event. As climate mitigation has become an increasing concern in the face of climate change, the artwork hopes to provoke thought on what can be done before it is too late

📸 https://www.instagram.com/p/Cl6brPKJoV8/

●The Tower of Perfidy” by Nur Farahhani Azwa Binti Rosli of Multimedia University. SDG Goal 16 Peace, Justice & Strong Institutions. Malaysia 🇲🇾 is a country at a crossroads, plagued by bribery & corruption. This artwork focuses on exploring how the country can achieve peace & justice in the aftermath of 1️⃣ of the biggest corruption scandals in the world 🌎

● “TemPixel” by Rufiyan Bin Ramli of Multimedia University. SDG Goal 13 Climate Action. With temperature mapping, this artwork explores rising temperatures recorded in Malaysia from 1991 to 2020 to demonstrate how our climate conditions have changed overtime. Thus, leading to the question: where do we go from here as our cities get hotter and development intensifies the effects of climate change❓⁉️

● “Heat Escape” by Group One Shot Production (Tey Yun Nee, Chin Jia Wei, Ting Ee Vern & Yeong Ke Xin) of Dasein Academy of Art. SDG Goal 13 Climate Action. Heat Escape uses anamorphic illusion (requiring the audience to stand in a specific distance for best viewing) & supportive motion on other sides on a cube screen. Based on audio-visual data of man-made disasters, Heat Escape transports us to the disaster scene for the audience to reflect on where our planet will head next. The conceptual sphere in an anamorphic view symbolises our planet earth while the changing shapes & elements on it represent man-made hazards – Deforestation, Air Pollution & Water Pollution, that ultimately causes global warming. As our plane finds its way to recover and humans continue the exploitation, the loop will never end, and the extinction of our planet & human beings will be inevitable

● “Heart in a Box”by Irfan Jamil of Multimedia University. SDG Goal 03 Good Health & Well-being. Heart in a Box is a 3D-generative art simulation based on data by The Oxford Martin School, on the increase in heart disease and cardiovascular problems within the global population from the year 2010. Creating a simulation of a heartbeat going at a healthy rate of 80 bpm (beats per minute), Heart in a Box aims to provide a visual representation of how it is like to live with cardio-vascular diseases

● “The Mar Effect” by Sadthna Sargamm Sathi of Educational Institution: Multimedia University. SDG Goal 13 Climate Action. The global COVID-19 pandemic around the globe 🌎 drastically decreased air pollution & greenhouse gas emissions but at the same time also increased demand on single-use plastics & overburdened waste management systems. This artwork is based on how the pandemic has changed our lives & the damages the earth is facing

● “Good Health & Well-Being” by Group Undefined Production (Tan Han Yang, Jason Seik Ping Sheng, Khor Yong Aun, Eugene Yip Tic Chun, Daniel Tan Wee Cheng & Rachel Khoo Rui Xin) of Han Chiang University College of Communication. SDG Goal 03 Good Health and Well-being. This artwork looks into aspects of the Malaysian healthcare system, the issues & improvements that could be made. The sub-topics chosen are Universal Access to Sexual & Reproductive Care, Family Planning & Education, Fight Communicable Disease, Suicide Mortality, Prevalence of Tobacco Use, Mortality Rate From Unsafe Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH). With the Malaysian healthcare system being put under pressure during the pandemic, this artwork invites the audience to reflect on how we had to navigate our health processes & how we progress❓⁉️

● “Zero Hunger” by Group Artistic Gang (Tan Sun Ying, P’ng Soak Nee & Yeap Quah Chin Xuan) of Han Chiang University College of Communication. SDG Goal 02 Zero Hunger. Malaysia 🇲🇾 as a developing nation is still suffering from food insecurity, childhood stunting & malnutrition. This artwork traverses the severity of the issue & hopes to inspire us to do our part in improving the wellbeing & health of our nation’s future

● “Poverty Tripped by Theeran Rajamokan of Multimedia University. SDG Goal 01 No Poverty. The generative artwork explores regions still left behind in extreme poverty. Using data from World Population Living In Extreme Poverty from 1990-2019, the artwork invites us to reflect on those left behind during the pre-pandemic world and how it resulted in inequality within & between countries when the COVID-19 pandemic hit

The iNYALA 2022 supports the SDGs defined by the United Nations General Assembly (UN-GA). The SDGs are a comprehensive set of goals to end poverty, protect our planet & improve the lives & prospects of the global population, now & into the future
