This year’s fundraising exhibition in aid of WWF-Malaysia will run from 17 May – 31 May 2009 in the underground gallery at Rimbun Dahan.

‘The tropical rainforest presents an ideal of wild perfection whose luxuriant growth we could to emulate in our gardens. It provides the inspiration for the landscapes of our imagination. The height of towering trees, their natural spacing and the effect of irregular features like rocks and rivers feed the well-spring of illumination for artists and poets trying to recreate something of this natural wonder in their own idiom. Without having seen a forest, how could we understand the potential of the material we work with? Where do we stand when our tanah air ceases to exist?’

Angela Hijjas & Noor Mahnun Mohamed

The exhibition is open from 10am to 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays, and on weekdays by appointment.
There will be a curator’s talk at Rimbun Dahan Gallery 3 pm, Saturday, 23 May

Rimbun Dahan is one of my favorites places which combines nature, art and architecture and it’s just about 1 hour drive from Kuala Lumpur.

Rimbun Dahan is a centre for developing traditional and contemporary art forms. It features buildings designed by Hijjas Kasturi, as well as a 19th century traditional Malay house, in an indigenous garden environment.

Please note that Rimbun Dahan is a private property. It is open to the public for limited hours only during exhibitions.
