Malaysian contemporary artist Andrew Pok’s latest site-specific installation at The Godown in Kuala Lumpur sounds deceptively simple: it is a maze made out of welded fences that stand 1.83m (6 feet) in height – the same kind of fence that is found outside his apartment, and quite possibly, around your neighbourhood too.

But it is not just an artwork that you admire from afar. No, it is one that invites you to interact with it, to walk through the maze and navigate its twists and turns.
