Dewan Sri Pinang
Immerse yourself in the many beautiful facets of the Penang culture, the characteristic of a heritage city like George Town. With psychedelic colours and playful tunes, this life-sized kaleidoscope is inspired by the motifs of Peranakan mosaics, beads, embroidery and culinary ware.
“Terpelanjat”, which means to be surprised and astonished in Malay, will delight and charm everyone who sets foot into this giant walk-through kaleidoscope. This multi-sensorial installation by artists Sumay Cheah and Ho Lay Hoon from OTHER HALF seeks to revive the fast-disappearing Peranakan culture and engage all thesenses of sight, sound, and scent.
Oh! Terpelanjat is a visual display that is immersive and therapeutic, and will speak to the hearts of those who truly long to live and breathe Penang.
