Anniketyni Madian

Born: 1986

Hometown: Sarawak

Lives and Works: Kuala Lumpur

 

Hailing from Sarawak Malaysia, young Malaysian contemporary artist Anniketyni Madian is the rare few, if not the only female wood sculptors in Malaysia.

Graduating with a degree in Fine Art (Sculpture) from MARA University of Technology Malaysia, Anniketyni explores within her deeply profound Sarawakian heritage to produce works that are strongly inspired by the sacred patterns of 'Pua Kumbu' textiles that carry with it deep spiritual and conventional cultural elements within the Iban folk. The Pua Kumbu resonates with lifecycle rituals and carries with it gender and hierarchical significance within its community.

Carrying her unique and profound Sarawakian heritage identity, her works continues to excite young contemporary audience today as she cleverly combines heritage and culture into modern aesthetic visuals that resonates with the contemporary viewers of today.

Young Anniketyni Madian has joined the HOM and Rimbun Dahan residency programs and is currently in the midst of embarking on her first international residency program.
