PLATFORM is an initiative by Galeri Chandan to encourage collaboration among graduates of Art & Design from local universities and colleges.

PLATFORM II is a continuation from the Platform I 2013 exhibition; a show that focuses on the fresh, young and talented artist whom has not yet found the right platform to embark on their journey in the art world.

Artist, Time and Space: art does not exist without artists, as well as artists without art. A different era that the artist has gone through creates the diversity of thoughts and ideas. Artists see time as another entity in the context of creating art, how the artist is able to process a work based on time and the surroundings. Space provided by the gallery helps the journey (nurturing) of young artists in shaping towards the direction and their identity in the art world.

This exhibition is a collaborative work by two young curators:  Muhammad Amir and Megat Zharif Zaim; showcasing a diverse media of forms, which includes paintings, print works, as well as 3-dimensional forms like ceramics and sculptures from wood and metal. Coming from various background, it ‘s a representation of each of their institution with their own signature and uniqueness; and it differentiates from one to the other.

PLATFORM II shall become witness to emerging talented students and fresh graduates from Dasein Academy of Art, Universiti Teknologi Mara, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Malaysian Institute of Art and Malaysia Multimedia University; namely Agnes Lau, Anis Che Mat, Azrul Azrai, Danial Fuad, Ezwa Hasin, Jasmine Cheong, Khairul Ehsani Sapari, Koo Yean Ni, Lam Shun Hui, Lim Yong Wei, Muhammad Faiz Sabri, Kamal Sazali, Nazrul Hamzah, Nurazmi Noh, Rais Azmie, Fatah Syukri, Nur Muhammad Amin, Muhammad Nur Faisa and Sarah Ameera.

We hope to inspire the young artists through this exhibition and create a better understanding of the art scene for them, how the art progresses and also expose them into becoming professional artists.
