From 1st June 2022 – 3rd July 2022, Art Porters Gallery showcases “Emak Kata Jangan Jadi Seniman” [Mum said don’t be an artist], a duo exhibition featuring Singaporean artists Johann M Fauzi and Masuri Mazlan. This show features large-scale realistic oil paintings and intimate abstract sculptures that explore identity, representation, and embodied memory.

The exhibition pries into Johann M Fauzi’s current research investigating the conceptual framing of Singapore’s landscape within the intersections of the Classical and Romantic periods, as well as ‘otherness’ and the position of the Malay in Singapore. In contrast, Masuri Mazlan’s central practice focuses on the affective and transformative potential of common industrial materials, as sculptural media. His sculptural objects tap on polyurethane, gypsum, and silicone to investigate identity politics, queer abstraction, as well as drawing inspirations from the domestic sphere as a destabilising site.
