Contemporary artist Dhavinder Singh’s Test Tanah installation art project is set to go places. Like the relentless development that finds its way into every corner of Kuala Lumpur, this project will pop up where cranes and construction converge.

This touring exhibit, which comprises two installation pieces fashioned out of bricks, soil, wood, cranes, a wheelbarrow and several other everyday curiosities, is currently on display on a rooftop venue in Chinatown that overlooks part of the city.
