Oct 6th, 2014 at Aliwal arts centre
Miun hosted “Sixth Sense”, an exhibition showcasing an assemblage of 10 handcrafted art boxes at Aliwal Arts Centre. The main work featured Miun’s workspace and profile picture, welcomed guests and led them to the remaining 9 step-by-step creative processes in 25x25x12cm boxes, each accompanied by an acrylic printed 2d image significantly captured with the newly released Leica T. Light was used to enhance the incoherent relation between the 2D images and 3D boxes, manifesting the infinite possibilities of how a single material and subject can be interpreted in the artist’s unique mind.
Over 100 guests including friends, artists, designers, photographers, media attended the event and all had their 6 senses pampered.
Dr Loretta Chen, a well known media personality, hosted the opening night with an introduction to the 6 senses:
1. Sense of Sight
Guests were warmly greeted by Miun’s artworks under the atmospheric lighting.
2. Sense of Hearing
Music was spun by Intriguant(Louis) and DJ Rage with Miun’s favourite vinyl selections.
3. Sense of Taste
Finger-licking canepes picked by Miun and specially prepared by Arbite includes buah keluak fries, tomato and feta cheese vol au vant, sea salt caramel cake and more. One of the mouth-watering highlights was the Ipoh white coffee potong ice cream which reminisced Miun’s hometown.
4. Sense of Smell
Through the use of aromatherapy, guests were enraptured by Miun’s favourite scent at work.
5. Sense of Touch
The workshop area was a replicated version of her workshop where guests were encourage to transform the specially designed invitation flyers into mini versions of her art boxes and customize their boxes with different materials like clay, cloth, wood, paint, etc.
6. "Sixth Sense"
