Salam @ Peace: Awal Hurouf

Core Design Gallery is pleased to announce Husin Hourmain’s upcoming solo exhibition, [email protected] Peace: Awal Hurouf, Asal Hurouf II . The exhibition is scheduled to run from 9 October – 13 November 2021 at Core Design Gallery, No.87, Jalan SS15/2A, 47500 Subang Jaya.

‘Salam @ Peace: Awal Hurouf, Asal Hurouf II’ is the culmination of Husin Hourmain’s art over the length of the lockdowns necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Comprising detailed contemporary calligraphy canvases in Pop colour palettes, this series marks a time of reflection for both the artist himself as well as society around him in the face of meditative solitude. As Husin found time to think and wonder, his mind went back to his own past and key moments in his life. Quickly, he noticed a trend of ‘looking back’ flowering, particularly on social media where friends and acquaintances shared favourite memories as a way to reminisce or discuss what we might look forward to in a post-pandemic world. As Husin thought through what the pivotal moments in his own life were, his mind consistently returned to what is widely considered the defining moment in his artistic practice: his 2013 exhibition ‘Awal Hurouf, Asal Hurouf’.
