Moulding the History: A Child and Monsters They Made stems from an observation he made during a recent time spent with his daughter at home. Looking out of the window, she had pleaded for permission to go out and play, but as it happened, the country had been blanketed in a cloud of haze for several months – particularly severe this year compared to the previous years – and Masnoor was reluctant to send his child out, despite her pouts and protests.

It was then that he recalled a similar situation in the late 1990s, around the time when the country had also been suffering from not only an extremely bad case of haze pollution, but economic and political issues. He sees the haze – both in the past and present – as a “sign”, a metaphor for not just environmental pollution, but political, social and economic problems that are currently beleaguering the country.

Masnoor Ramli’s multidisciplinary practice encompasses painting, print, photography and video while balancing the emphasis on conceptual urgency and visual delivery. Often incorporating Western icons American politicians such as George W Bush in I Dream of Rome and Barack Obama in Moulding the History spring to mind. Masnoor is known for employing the figure as a site of discourse. Upon graduating from Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Masnoor went on to found the MATAHATI art collective along with Ahmad Fuad Osman, Ahmad Shukri, Bayu Utomo Radjikin and Hamir Soib. Today, he stands out as one of the most influential contemporary figures in Malaysia, as both an artist and an intellectual.
