The Malaysian Rice-Plates Project

The Malaysian Rice-Plates aims to celebrate the melting-pot in Malaysia by selected Malaysian artists.

With rice being the stable food in Asia, the rice-plate is an important symbol of unity as all Malaysian eat their rice mostly from plates.

It's also a sign of survival as the rice plate symbolizes the way one makes a living.
It also acts as an introduction for foreign visitors to the rich world of art in Malaysia and will be an unique experience for people to view this project as a whole or individual piece reflects the artists' distinct individual approach to the theme

It has been put together by Wei-Ling Gallery and is presented by the Ministry of Tourism in conjunction with the 1st Malaysian Contemporary Art Tourism 2011.

Here is the glimpse of it captured on video and shots. Hope you enjoy them one by one.
My favourites are 9, 27, 29 and 33.

What an interesting display. I liked 29 and the one with the big lips. I thought it was funny. I like to hear about your culture.
