Description | Others

GERIMIS is a collaborative art exhibition and archiving initiative that explores Orang Asli narratives through the reconstruction of spaces and the coming together of various Orang Asli contemporary artists, photographers and weavers.

They are contemporary artists Shaq Koyok (Temuan), Ramlan Koyok (Temuan) and Leny Maknoh (Temuan); digital artist Vicky Eluq (Semai); photographers Jefree Salim (Orang Seletar) and Ronnie Bahari (Semai); partners Persatuan Kebudayaan dan Kesenian Orang Asal Perak and Seletar Cultural and Arts Society; as well as Temuan weavers of the Kumpulan Kembang Sejambak from Kampung Paya Rumput, Selangor.

Exploring the story of the land, what happened to the people that lived there, and where they are today, GERIMIS collectively documents Orang Asli shared history, practices as well as adaptations of culture and community via a series of artworks, photographs, zines and installations.
