Hayati Mokhtar (b. 1969, Kuantan, Pahang) obtained her MA Fine Art at Goldsmiths' College, University of London. Her earlier practice emerged out of her preoccupation with issues of cultural identity and the sense of loss and displacement caused by the legacy of colonialism and the process of globalisation. These themes underpin her interest in memory and use of culturally specific objects, and have gone on to influence her more recent video works. Her current practice utilises the moving image — often displayed as installations set across multiple screens — in examining landscapes, buildings, and semi-abandoned towns. In exploring such sites these works delve into ideas to do with the notions of space, place, home, and belonging.



Lee Mok Yee (b. 1988, Klang, Selangor) graduated with a Degree in Fine Art from Middlesex University, London in 2014 and a Diploma in Fine Art from the Dasein Academy of Art, Kuala Lumpur in 2010. Through installations, he presents materials reflective of his cultural and political background. These are then reinterpreted and reconstructed to share a belief in the interconnection between art and society.

Drawing on her interest in Malay cultural narratives, tales, and legends, she expands literary metaphor and traditional craft sensibilities with a contemporary approach, often using found materials and objects to create provocative sculptures and installations. Her work is also deeply rooted in her experiences as an artist, wife, mother, and Malay woman.



Tan Zi Hao (b. 1989, Kuala Lumpur) is currently completing a PhD in Southeast Asian Studies at the National University of Singapore and holds an MA degree in International Relations and a BA degree in International Communications Studies from the University of Nottingham Malaysia Campus. He is a multidisciplinary conceptual artist who works in installation and performance art. His practice is informed by the contested politics of identity vis-à-vis the nation-state, as well as sociopolitical otherness. These ideas take shape across a diverse range of topics such as soil ecology, language politics, etymology, postcolonial historiographies, mythical composite creatures, and organic assemblages from carrier shells (Xenophora pallidula) to household casebearers (Phereoeca uterella).



Viko Zhijune (b. 1993, Kuala Lumpur) graduated with a Diploma in Fine Arts from the Dasein Academy of Art, Kuala Lumpur in 2015. Her practice uses painting, drawing and textiles to map her inner world. As a poetic account of thoughts, experiences, and reflections, these visual musings act as an exercise in self-discovery through a complex network of lines shapes and colours. As a young and emerging artist, Viko has participated in numerous group shows in Malaysia.
 


Yee I-Lann (b. 1971, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah) graduated with a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Photography and a minor in Cinematography from the University of South Australia, Adelaide, Australia in 1993.

She has an extensive and multilayered visual vocabulary drawn from historical references, popular culture, archives, and everyday objects.
