Launch of our exhibition at Publika
Really great response to our exhibition at Publika. Someone said that she bought our book because she wanted her children to know what it was like in Malaysia while they were growing up. Everyone stopped to look at the photographs. Our dialog session went well. Most poignant was the response of Justina, one of the Temuan kids who lives at the dormitory SEMOA provides for them in Tras, Pahang. She was asked what she wanted the public to know about the Orang Asal. She said simply, “Jangan lupakan kita” meaning, “Don’t forget us”.
Here are pictures from the launch on 23-November, 2014. Initially, the last day of our exhibition was 2-September but the good folks at Publika have asked us to stay on till 11-September. The exhibition is currently ongoing at the concourse level, G2 at Publika. High quality prints from the book can be found at Artemis Art, Lot 21 & 22, Level G4, Publika Shopping Gallery.
