Medium: Canvas, Embossed Dye, Wood Panels
Size: 244 cm x 244 cm
Year: 2010

Zulkifli Yusoff’s Kebun Pak Awang III (2010) is an exemplary reflection of his overall practice, which is an exploration of personal, national and cultural identity through the lens of history and socio-politics. His use of different media and techniques ranging from painting, drawing and printmaking. He fully exploits these techniques to create his cultural iconography and symbolism, in which are embedded narratives of nostalgia, belonging and memory.

The screen-printed fruit bears resemblance to the drawings of the early British colonialists who assiduously documented the treasures of their discoveries as they went about exploring the country. Situated in this wider context, the fruit motifs become the receptacle of a wider historical narrative. More than mere fruits, we apprehend the symbolic trajectory of their representation, which includes the bounty of the colonialists, a thing of exoticism, to be studied, classified and conquered; to the actions of a newly independent country to create self-sufficiency and support rural livelihood; to a way of life that is under threat.

Artist Profile

Born: 1962

Hometown: Kedah

Based in: Kuala Lumpur

Enriching historical understanding through art is a conceptual hallmark of Zulkifli Yusoff’s practice. With a portfolio that consists of two-dimensional mixed media work, painting, sculpture and installation, he consistently seeks ways through which his art might encourage interrogations of personal and collective histories amongst wider audiences. Zulkifli’s position in the Malaysian art canon is well renowned. Critical success came early in his career, and from a young age he has been the recipient of several major art awards. In both 1988 and 1989 he was presented with the Major Award for Young Contemporaries at the National Art Gallery in Kuala Lumpur and in 1992 he gathered three prizes at the third Salon, the Grand Minister’s Prize, Major Award and Consolation Prize for sculpture and also won an Honourable Mention in Painting in 1995 at the Philip Morris Awards. Additionally, he frequently exhibits at important international exhibitions, most notably the Venice Biennale in 1997 and again this year, 2019.

His works have also been presented at the Biennale of Visual Arts in Seychelles, the Fukuoka Asian Art Exhibition in Japan, Immunity 11 show at Art Space, Sydney and the First Asia-Pacific Triennale in Brisbane, Australia. Major international institutions, including the Fukuoka Museum of Art and Hiroshima Art Museum in Japan and the Singapore Art Museum and Gallery, as well as local institutions such as Bank Negara Malaysia and the Kedah State Gallery, collect his work.
