The Lain Lain Exhibition - Embracing Differences

Over the past four years, the Borneo Laboratory has woven together artists of diverse backgrounds and practices through their art. Aiming to bridge divisions and rekindle our shared roots through the ancestral wisdom drawn from Borneo's craft practices, Malayan communities, and global communities, the Lain Lain Project unveils these narratives through an evocative, thought-provoking exhibition, The Lain Lain Project. This trilogical exhibition features "Serumpun", which explores the endeavours of 12 Bornean-based craft communities and their commitment to preserving ancestral wisdom in the face of eroding traditions due to extraction economies, "Big Trip", which looks at how ancestral wisdom and rooted practices cultivate broader global connections, and "Lain-lain in Kuala Lumpur" that initiates an ongoing dialogue to unravel the intricacies of lain-lain within the Malayan landscape.

On the show to tell us about the stories and experiences from which the exhibition grew, contextualising the Lain-lain narrative for a KL audience, and what we can expect at the exhibition is curator Wendy Teo, Director of the Borneo Laboratory.

The Lain Lain Exhibition is open to the public now until 20th October 2024 at GMBB.
