Karwai Chan and CUURA Space have come together to connect hearts

Live, learn, love with this artful collaboration combining furniture and visual arts with CUURA Space and Karwai Chan!

On February 2, 2024, Malaysian online furniture retailer CUURA Space together with contemporary visual artist Karwai Chan hosted Creating Shared Connections, an art installation set to transform the traditional concept of showcasing furniture. The artistic collaboration is infused with the brilliance of Chan’s latest series Cupid Rhapsody: Way Back To Love. It is also an exciting venture putting together Nordic-inspired designs and the romance of Valentine’s Day.

Aimed to challenge conventional presentation methods, CUURA Space’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Benny Lim says, “We’re looking to change the way people view furniture, literally and metaphorically. We normally view furniture as just things, objects you expect to find at home, but in truth, they offer so many opportunities for connecting and improving relationships — from the sofa, where you can sit and spend time with your loved ones, to your dining table where meals and memories are shared, to the bed, where you can share intimate moments with your significant other. By displaying these pieces alongside Karwai [Chan]’s artwork, we’re aiming to showcase these opportunities for connection — something relevant during February since Valentine’s Day is this month.”

The installation, which is hosted at SWOL Cafe in Bangsar features an innovative display: an entire bedroom set suspended on the wall, adorned with Chan’s doodles and paintings.

Chan, a self-taught artist in the visual arts scene is recognised for her vivid tapestries capturing life’s diverse moments. Her artwork, previously featured alongside prestigious brands like McLaren and Lamborghini, and displayed at major events such as F1, showcases her unique talent. Showcasing her latest art series, the exhibition centred around the theme of Cupids exploring the many themes of love, aligning perfectly with the ambience of February.

Catch the exhibition now at SWOL Cafe! Karwai Chan’s Cupids will be on the wall over at the venue from February 3 to 29, 2024.
