We cordially invite you to the opening of the exhibition “Willst du mit uns gehen?” by Zelin Seah (*1980, Kuala Lumpur) on December 14th at 7pm at basis project space.

The installative exhibition "Willst du mit uns gehen?" concludes Zelin Seah's three-month AIR_Frankfurt artist residency at basis e.V. Frankfurt presenting his new works. While his residency in a rapidly transforming city like Frankfurt, Seah has focused on the structures of mobilty, habitat and facade. His painted 'Quilts' appear like amorph sculptures that can be moved, placed and activated into a proper shelter through the visitor's action.

«Since ancient times migration is the norm, either active or forced. In order to survive, men have learned to adapt to new environments, building up habitat with limited resources, either in mobile or pemanent settings. It is animacy, it is by instincts. Soon the accumulation of capital has enabled certain people to highlight their status and wealth by owning housing properties. As an artist I have experienced migration while a limited period of time. And I shall move on. Like an actor, I have tried to fit in a new life and to begin to build my habitat.» (Zelin Seah)

AIR_Frankfurt is a cooperation by basis e.V. Frankfurt and lostgens' Kuala Lumpur and is supported by the Cultural Department of the city of Frankfurt and Goethe-Institute Malaysia.
