Cadangan-cadangan untuk Negara Ku

Liew Kung Yu

Venue: Bustle Gallery14 Apr 2009 - 14 Jun 2009

Inspired by the monuments and public sculptures found in MWork by Liew Kung Yewalaysia, artist Liew Kung Yu has created eight new works that offers the viewers of what Malaysia could look like in the future. The sculptural works comprise a Photoshop montage of various public sculptures found in the country such as the giant Pitcher Plant at Dataran Merdeka and the concrete tigers at Zoo Negara. Kung Yu's works are playful, theatrical, extremely kitsch and strangely beautiful.
"Cadangan-Cadangan untuk Negaraku" will continue to be showcased in GALERI PETRONAS until 14 June 2009.

Malaysia-365 days of 2008
Artist: Nor Azizan Rahman Paiman

Malaysia-365 days of 2008 is a compilation and documentation of the year 2008, as seen through the analytical mind of the important social/political Malaysian artist Paiman (Nor Azizan Rahman Paiman). Born in Malacca in 1970, Paiman received his art education in both Malaysia and the United Kingdom and attained a MA in Fine Arts from the Manchester Metropolitan University in 2001. Since 1991 he has exhibited widely both in Malaysia and on an international arena, including the '1st Fukuoka Asian Art Trienniale 1999’, Japan, and at the ‘Asia-Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT5)’ ,Queensland,Australia in 2007. A selection of Paiman’s distinctive works can also be seen in the collection of the Queensland Art Gallery (QAG) in Australia.

Over the years Paiman has made a name for himself with his unique imaginary, caricatures which are juxtaposed against statements by important Malaysian figures in a witty commentary on Malaysian life. He has often said that he considers himself a ‘backdated reporter’ and that ‘everything changes in the world, and more often than not there are issues or incidents that we have forgotten or ignored’. In this set of works he spent the whole of 2008 going through all the major papers of the country on a daily basis in an arduous task to extract one statement that best reflected the sentiment that day. Armed with this statement, he stenciled the quote onto the corresponding page of an Islamic diary, and then rendered his wonderful fantastical figures over them, ending up over the course of a year with a diary filled with the ‘essence’ of 2008.

The artist aptly says:

"MALAYSIA 365 days of 2008 is a fragmented arrangement of a particular moment in time as the country came face to face with many difficult situations. I played my part as a Malaysian to record everyday life in a creative way. Provocation has everything to do with perception. Perception is controlled by a world view and world view is controlled by a counter situation."

Reflective practice is a concept used in education studies and pedagogy. It was introduced by Donald Schön in his book The Reflective Practitioner in 1983. The concepts underlying reflective practice are much older. The Meditations of Marcus Aurelius has been described as a prototype of reflective practice by Seamus Mac Suibhne .[1]
Reflective practice is a continuous process and involves the learner considering critical incidents in his or her life's experiences. As defined by Schön, reflective practice involves thoughtfully considering one's own experiences in applying knowledge to practice while being coached by professionals in the discipline. It has been described as an unstructured approach directing understanding and learning, a self regulated process, commonly used in Health and Teaching professions, though applicable to all. (R.Gregory)
In education, it refers to the process of the educator studying his or her own teaching methods and determining what works best for the students. Reflective practice can help an individual to develop personally.
Reflective practice is associated with learning from experience, and is viewed as an important strategy for health professionals who embrace lifelong learning. The act of reflection is seen as a way of promoting the development of autonomous, qualified and self-directed professionals. Engaging in reflective practice is associated with the improvement of the quality of care, stimulating personal and professional growth and closing the gap between theory and practice, (Jasper, 2003).
In reflective practice it is possible to distinguish three different phases. Schön (1983) distinguished between reflection-in-action (at the same time as the practice takes place) and reflection-on-action (afterwards). More recently McAlpine [2] has included the advance reflection (Reflection-for-action) in the model.
Gibbs (1988) reflective cycle is fairly straightforward and encourages a clear description of the situation, analysis of feelings, evaluation of the experience, analysis to make sense of the experience, conclusion where other options are considered and reflection upon experience to examine what you would do if the situation arose again.
