Midday Stanza is Haffendi Anuar’s first solo exhibition in Singapore. The artist will be showing an installation, consisting a diverse language of objects and materials, from wall sculptures to floor pieces that resemble architectural fragments. This show is an extension of Anuar’s 3-month residency programme at Acme Studios, London, in 2018. The residency is a programme under Khazanah Residency programme (KAAR), and initiative by Khazanah Nasional Berhad.
In Anuar’s latest body of work, the artist creates a surrogate landscape within the gallery space. A landscape that is in a way a reflection of the artist’s capital city, Kuala Lumpur, with its distinctive urban fabric, vernacular architecture and seductive “glossy image”. In this exhibition, Anuar looks at the city in a different perspective, viewing at how the structures and monuments around the city centre suggest a sense of position and prestige through verticality and materiality, as well as reflecting on the political paradigm shift of late.
