-----------------------------------
Slippage: The Process of Slipping from a Desired Position was a series of complex sculptural works using sourced local and everyday materials. The result is a reflection and response on the built environment in Malaysia, particularly Kuala Lumpur. Wooden chopsticks and skewers form imaginary scaffolding, buildings that are empty of life. Laced into the works are toy models of dinosaurs, iconic buildings and doll furniture, building a sense of indefinable yet playful narratives. Observation is placed in the slippage: that instance of slipping from a stable or desired position. By challenging the good in the bad and the bad in the good, this work enables the imagination to roam more freely. These works are models reminiscent and suggestive of something bigger, a memory of the future. Tobias Richardson, Kuala Lumpur 2008
