  A group exhibition featuring 12 lecturers from UITM Perak will take place at NN Gallery from 8 - 29 August 2009.

NN Gallery is pleased to present a group exhibition entitled Virus 12 by UITM Perak lecturers showcasing paintings, mixed media work, digital and installation art, sculptures and ceramic. The participating artists include Muhd Sarip Abd Rahman, Zainon Abdullah, Norshahidan bin Mohamad, Asrul Nizuan Ariffin, Muhamad Abdul Aziz Ab. Gani, Khairul Nizan Mohd Aris, Khairul Anuar Ibrahim, Hamdan Shaarani, Mohd Daud Abdul Rahim, Aznan Omar, Mohamad Hafiz bin Yahaya and Izaddin Matrahah.

The twelve participating artists have come up with their own artistic interpretation and ideas relating to the more scientific concept of Virus. Virus often connotes harmful diseases but there are also viruses that are not harmful and often work to one’s benefit causing immune response in eliminating other viruses. As such the artists have translated in their art both positive and negative approaches to the theme.

A total of 25 artworks, ranging from the sublime to the more provocative, will be on display from 8th - 29th August 2009 at NN Gallery. The artworks exemplify the kind of medium, styles and thoughts of the School of Art & Design in UITM Perak, where this group of both emerging and established artists are currently teaching.
