Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The scene takes place at our renowned Kota Raya bus depot in Kuala Lumpur city centre. In its heyday, Kota Raya Bus Depot was the main bus depot for all interchanges of buses within KL city centre as well as for the buses inbound and outbound of Kuala Lumpur. Kota Raya Bus Depot was a true landmark for many, acting as the main transport route and meeting point. As city development takes place, its role as the main bus depot has now been scaled down where bus depot interchanges are now moved out of the city for better convenience.

Partially hidden, a wooden ticket counter stands on the left while the long-forgotten phone booths stand abundant in the background, a key source of communication that now nears extinction as mobile phones seizes the nation. In gleeful leisure, the boys hang out reading the then-popular Gila-Gila magazine as they poke fun at the happenings of passers-by at the crowded depot. Gila-Gila magazine was then a hit with the locals, a source of harmless humour for many. Reminiscing on the carefree days and harmless jokes, as the country moves into the globalisation era, Husin ponders curiously on the seemingly harmless prejudicial opinions on social media that now seems to be the platform for humour, keenly in wonder whether the opinions and comments passed on social media pose more harm than mischief
