Malaysian sculptor's new series connects art, healing and music

“(The exhibition) 're:sonance' is inspired by the beauty that exists in nature, that is often unseen by us in our rush to get on with our now ‘new normal’ lives of anxiety, chaos and the unknown,' says Seet. Photo: Wizard Photography

Contemporary artist James Seet’s latest ceramics project is as much a feast for the eyes as it is for the soul. An exercise in bringing healing through the arts, these ceramic pieces double as wind and percussion instruments that will be used in music performances throughout the exhibition run at APW Bangsar in Kuala Lumpur from Feb 26 to March 13.

With over 20 years of experience with sculpture work and ceramics, Seet has had a number of projects under his belt, including Tanahair, a floating ceramic installation on a lake in Johor, and a public art installation for an awareness campaign against domestic violence for Women’s Aid Organisation in Kuala Lumpur a few years ago.
