A Public Community Interactive Art Program
Theme – Forging Ahead
Venue: Tanjung Aru Beach 2, KK
The 10th Installation Art by the Bay @ KK is holding its 10th Anniversary edition at Tanjung Aru Beach 2, simultaneously with The Tanjung Aru Beach Festival 2023.
Drawing their inspiration from the theme “Forging Ahead ”, 14 teams are showcasing their 3D installation art pieces and Eco-Sculptures, all made from waste, reusable or recyclable materials such as scrap metal, plastic, glass, tree branches, tyres, wood, pieces and plants. The selection of these reusable materials aims at raising public awareness of the need for sustainability in our
environment. Associate Professor Dr Awangku Hassanal Bahar Pengiran Bagul, Chairman of the event is heartened to note that some previous art creations will be re-installed to bring us down memory lane in celebration of this event’s 10th Anniversary. We should have about 25 Art Installations set on the beach.
This year’s event is supported by participation from Denmark & Finland, Singapore and Sabah. Many of the teams have been participating in the event since its first edition in 2014.
Looking back into the history of the event, Installation Art by the Bay @ KK started as a platform to increase awareness on the diversity of art. There is so much more to art than paintings. We wanted to introduce Installation Art as another art form to be appreciated as well as utilising this art form to convey environmental and sustainability messages through upcycling. In addition, we envisioned this annual program to involve potential national and international art teams as well as being a tourist attraction.
Since its inception in 2014, the Installation Art by the Bay @ KK event has consistently promoted the theme of environmental awareness. Every installation art has to communicate to the society that we should operate based on four core values – Sustainable Development, Ecological Protection, Resource Conservation and Environmental leadership.
The organising committee strongly believes that using installation art as a medium to communicate environmental issues can encourage positive environmental awareness by stimulating discussion, reflection and engagement that result in positive action towards environment protection. Over the past 9 years the event has recorded over 150,000 on-site visitors, 300,000 online reach and engaged more than 2000 artists all over the world.
We will keep organising this event, giving opportunities to all the participants and the public to immerse themselves in the environmental themes by being committed in becoming more green, more eco-friendly and more sustainable in our behaviour and in the choices we make.
