Anne Samat

Anne Samat (b. 1973, Malaysia) graduated in 1995 from Mara Institute of Technology, in Malaysia. She holds a Bachelor Degree in Art and Design (textile design) with a major in weaving and a minor in resist print technique.

Since graduating, Samat has received a number of awards such as the Jurors’ Award Open Show Malaysia in 2014, Top Ten Malaysian Female Artists in 2013, and the Incentive Award by Shah Alam Gallery in Selangor, Malaysia, in 2012. She has also recently completed her residency in Hudson Valley Museum of Contemporary Art, New York in 2019, where her first solo exhibition in the United States, Greatest Love, was also held.

Samat is a pioneer in the contemporary weaving world, promoting the woven tradition by blending Malaysian Songket textiles with her own unique interpretations. Using intricately-woven textile, synthetic fibres, rattan sticks, and other found objects, Anne creates colourful and elaborate totems inspired by ancient tales of her ancestry, evoke her familial lineage and the rich cultural diversity of Malaysia. Her work merges the old with the new, and feminine and masculine energies.

Recent exhibitions include Stories We Scare Ourselves With, Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei, Taiwan (2019); Contemporary Chaos, Vestfossen Kunstlaboratorium, Norway (2018); Elevation Laos, Vientiane, Laos (2018); Yokohama Triennale 2017, Yokohama, Japan; Di Mana (Where Are) YOUng?, National Art Gallery, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2017); and Sultanate in the Eye, Monarchy at Heart, at Richard Koh Fine Art, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2017).
