Feed Me! An Exploration of Appetites

WWF-Malaysia’s Art for Nature 2006

Food is one of the most important aspects of Malaysian life. Whether we eat in stalls, hotels, at home or in coffee shops, food brings people together and keeps them together. Similarly, the act of feeding and hosting others reveals the character of our affections and ambitions.

This year’s Art for Nature, Feed Me! An Exploration of Appetites, is an exploration of physical, emotional and even spiritual hungers, and our need to assuage them. On a deeper level the theme of this exhibition forces us to recall how uncontrolled appetites have led to tremendous destruction of natural resources and the oppression of peoples. Under the guise of development and modernisation, we have inflicted irreversible ecological damage on the forests, oceans and hills that surround and support us.

Why has our hunger been allowed to run unchecked?

Proceeds from the sale of artworks are channelled towards WWF-Malaysia’s efforts to safeguard Malaysia’s abundant and unique natural heritage.

The event was held at Rimbun Dahan, the home of Angela and Hijjas Kasturi, Kilometer 27, Jalan Kuang, 48050 Kuang. Channel [V] Vj, Paula Malai Ali, was the emcee for the evening and Art for Nature was officiated by YTM Dato’ Seri Tunku Puteri Intan Safinaz.

Art for Nature 2006 is sponsored by Hijjas Kasturi Associates Sdn., Design Team, Percetakan Imprint and Tye Cine.
