Contemporary artist Ain Rahman’s installation Deep The Sea, Above Galaxy was a long time in the making. With the finishing touches placed earlier this month, the dark and mysterious cuboid installation now stands at Core Design Gallery in Petaling Jaya, an imposing assembly of fabric and sculpture that looks as stoic as it is fluid.

In this exhibition space, a fogging device provides the “mist” while the fabric billows in the gentle breeze. It invites you to dive into the inky sea, then soar above the clouds in the dark sky, as deep and as high as you can go.
