One of the exhibits currently on display at the Hokkien Association at Pulau Pangkor in Perak is an installation made up of pieces of wood scattered on the floor and suspended in the air, sourced from the nearby shipyard. They bear the marks of hard work, with their grooves and cuts left on display for all to see.

This installation is one of the highlights at Labour And Weight: A Travelling Exhibition, a site-specific artistic research and collaboration production between four artists and cultural workers, namely Lee Mok Yee, Okui Lala, Yeo Lyle and Koe Cheng Gaik.
