at GALERI PETRONAS (Level 3, Suria KLCC)

In conjunction with Malaysia's 52nd anniversary, GALERI PETRONAS is pleased to present our latest exhibition entitled "CHANGING PHASES: Relative Spaces" as part of PETRONAS' Merdeka celebrations. This exhibition is the Malaysian segment of the touring exhibition that was held at the Viet Art Centre, Hanoi in September 2008.

CHANGING PHASES: Relative Spaces explores the development of Malaysian art practices, examining the contemporary social environment of Malaysia and its relationship with its ASEAN neighbours since the 1950s, with selected artworks from the PETRONAS Art Collection. Curated by Shireen Naziree, prominent South East Asian art historian, this exhibition also presents the works from the PETRONAS Art Collection as markers of Malaysian visual history. It offers a visual journey into the development of modern Malaysia – visitors will be able to witness and experience rarely- seen historically-significant artworks by established Malaysian-born artists. Their art will take visitors through the social development and economic growth of the country, depicting the evolution of the Malaysian psyche and identity into the progressive nation as we know it today.

CHANGING PHASES: Relative Spaces addresses relevant issues affecting Malaysia since our independence through the display of artworks that have been mostly produced from the 1960s until the present. The broad spectrum of artworks in the exhibition also highlights the diversity of Malaysian art practices contained in the PETRONAS Art Collection. The exhibition presents 39 artworks by 21 artists, from the established seniors like Latiff Mohidin, Syed Thajudeen and Khoo Sui Hoe, passing through mid-career artists Simryn Gill and Mad Annuar Ismail, to new generation artists Ivan Lam, Yau Bee Ling and Roslisham Ismail, among others. The need to understand and preserve our traditional values and cultural identity amidst economic and social development in an increasingly borderless world is a message which is echoed throughout the exhibition.

In essence, CHANGING PHASES: RELATIVE SPACES: Relative Spaces is a celebration of the Malaysian story in conjunction with the nation's 52 year of independence and PETRONAS's 35 years of operations as we mark our 35th anniversary this 17th August 2009.

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.
