YEE I-LANN: BOOGEYMAN will be launched in Kuala Lumpur on Malaysia Day, 16th September 2010. This exhibition explores notions of the local body politic, the birth of Malaysia as a nation, piracy and resistance, and includes a significant new body of works in photomedia, batik and pewter.
Boogeyman will introduce her new body of work ‘The Orang Besar Series’. The literal translation of ‘Orang Besar’ is ‘Big Person’, a common term dating centuries and used throughout the Southeast Asian archipelago to denote a person of elite socio-political-economic standing in a community. The works illustrate the Orang Besar structure, the body politic, and how this continues to be a major character in the region’s political and economic nature in our modern society.
Boogeyman will also showcase four Malaysia Day Commemorative Plates to honour the birth and formation of the Federation of Malaysia, her four territories and their leaders.
