COBO Social – Hasanul Isyraf Idris at Richard Koh Fine Art (Kuala Lumpur/Singapore/Bangkok)
Speaking about parallel worlds, the one inhabited by Malaysian artist Hasanul Isyraf Idris is a dystopian dimension which doesn’t know empty space. The horror vacui—also known as kenophobia‚ comprised of a colourful foods, animals and objects coexisting on the canvas surface is a powerful reflection of everyday society. And perhaps our own noisy mental space too. Chaotic and brutal, this series of works called “In The Night Market” is marked by a strong personal element, tied to the investigation of family ancestry and origins.
