In Jan 2022, notable Malaysian artist Hasanul Isyraf participated in the group exhibition, Another Continent at the Taitung Art Museum, Taiwan. The show curated by Nobuo Takamori featured two works from Hasanul’s long running and iconic Higher Order Love (HOL) series that the artist ascribed his own meaning and interpretation to personal experience, life events and rites of passage.
The two works – which form a larger part of the HOL: Scab: Crying Tiger in The Night Market series – presented familiar subjects, such as cooking paraphernalia and ingredients, that are commonly found in the kitchen, which the artist considers as “the heart of the house” as it nurtures the growth of its occupants. The series focuses on the chaotic and brutal cooking process to draw parallels to the complexities of contemporary life, as the symbol of a cooking knife hints at the use of knives in fights, hunting and surgery.
