In an exploration of the self and the realities around us, TU7OH stands as an interlace of voices and perspectives through visual art. The exhibition brings together seven Penang-based artists with varied backgrounds, skills, and influences, each presenting a series of artworks as an extension of their interpretations of the number seven.
The exhibition facilitates viewers to immerse themselves in a range of approaches - from traditional, experimental, postmodern, and contemporary. It is also a celebration of mediums and techniques shaped and defined by the seven elements of art – line, colour, value, shape, form, space, and texture. Neither works nor artistic practices overlap, yet the artistry enables viewers to witness, analyse and unravel the connections and interactions of art, creativity and storytelling.
Well-received throughout George Town Festival 2022, TU7OH now tours temu house, offering a different experience with similar threads. With each artist extending works in their series and others creating new forms of artwork, TU7OH acts as another chapter of the same book – a continuation of their story.
Featuring Aboud Fares, bibichun, ERYN, Esther Geh, Maizul Affendy, Mandy Maung and White Bones, TU7OH weaves individual narratives into a tapestry of the past and present. It then compels us to wonder about the future and our place in reshaping or recreating all that lies ahead.
