Rimbun Dahan Artist Residency 2022

During his 2-month residency at Rimbun Dahan, Mok Yee explored different materials inspired by Rimbun Dahan and the Malay kampung surroundings. Using scrap wood and PVC carpet that he bought from stores nearby, he attempted to build structures which connected body and architecture. The outcome was a study of materials, pending further exploration in this series of works.

Mok Yee also resumed his study of techniques he had used previously, creating drawings using charcoal on paper, and etchings on kitchenware. For Mok Yee, this practice was a kind of collective process of memory and form inspired by Rimbun Dahan.
