Connected by a keen interest to address observations on surrounding cultural climate, We are here presents narratives that surround the human condition and its role in shaping individual identities and a nation. Drawing from a selection of 4 female artists born in Malaysia, the selection of earlier and new works by these artists provide vantages from within a domestic setting and the society at large, encouraging a journey to observe the undercurrents and conditions of a progressing nation. Female artists in Malaysia have long been voicing sound criticisms on complex issues while furthering the development of new media. Their observations on race, religion, gender, identity and nationhood have enhanced insights on the shifting of class and society within their locality.

Bibi Chew examines the course of building boundaries through incisive cutouts and collages, Chew also returns to an earlier installation piece from 1996 to continue her dialogue on identity and origins.

Nadiah Bamadhaj expands on the desctructive conflicts surrounding religion, power and governance through a polyptych of her monochromatic charcoal collage, accompanied by a new video piece completed during her recent feature at Asia Contemporary Art Week New York 2017.

Minstrel Kuik observes the passage of time through her photography print series and charcoal drawings, juxtaposing the past and present, Kuik's practice record and suspend historical moments in Malaysia that shaped national and cultural identity.

Tetriana Ahmed Fauzi charts the interrelationship between the various identities governed by environment through her installation of mixed media soft sculptures comprising of household, studio and office objects.

Bibi Chew, Nadiah Bamadhaj, Minstrel Kuik and Tetriana Ahmed Fauzi are female artists that continue to challenge our notion and presumption of art and aesthetics while addressing a wide-range of concerns through their passion and commitment towards the arts. Their constant explorations conveyed through a language of deeply personal experience and symbolisms have contributed towards making Malaysian art as versatile as we know it today.

Richard Koh Fine Art has been in operation since 2005 and is regarded as a pioneer for introducing Asian contemporary art to Malaysia and the region. Promoting an adventurous roster of emerging and established artists, the gallery regularly mounts exhibitions locally and abroad with a commitment to emerging practices and challenging media.
