A solo project by Roslisham Ismail aka Ise

16th-18th April 2010

15, Jalan Mesui, 50200 Kuala Lumpur

Opening Hours 6pm-Midnight

Known for his irreverence, wit and use of travel as a social connector Roslisham Ismail aka Ise presents his most recent and complex conceptual project to date. The artist reveals his never before seen mixed media drawing series as part of an ambitious project entitled Ghost at 15, Jalan Mesui, 50200 Kuala Lumpur. Produced during a period of insomnia, the creation of these highly personal works finally allowed him to sleep after 24 images were made. Using this visual meditation as a starting point for conceptual ideas Ise aims to provide an alternative experience of contemporary art by challenging our dependence on visual images.

For this project, 10 drawings have been specially chosen and were presented to individuals from and outside the art world in closed-door critique sessions. The discussions were then recorded and edited into a soundscape that will be presented to the public in an exhibition held in April 2010, at the address above.


Through the aid of these soundscapes, viewers are invited to use their imagination to picture the work that they hear being described in the critique, along with a special recorded conversation between the artist and curators, and ambient sounds layered into this unique cacophony of voices. Installed in a dark abandon house, with only spoken words to fill the haunting and empty space, the artist intends to engage his audience with the notion of invisibility, narratives, site specificity and the use of sound in contemporary visual practice.

By blinding his audience, Ise wants to examine how we truly look at art. The removal of the works all together highlights that physical emptiness combined with intellectual consideration can be just as exciting and thought provoking an experience in
contemporary art. With no image to distract us we are forced to consider ideas, and the spaces we view art in order to understand what images can mean and how we enjoy them.

Ghost is a highly collaborative project and is co-curated by Vincent Leong and Eva McGovern who are working with Bullet (from Carburetor Dung) and Bob (from The Pilgrims). Taking place over a long weekend the project will open with a DJ-set by Asung (Jakarta).

There will be a special closing event with a live performance by local post rock band Deep Set who will be musically responding to the drawings to create a spectacular finale to this intricate and ambitious project.
