Do you still remember our first ‘Migration‘ in which 250 artists from 38 countries had congregated in the beautiful island of Langkawi?

 

The much-anticipated journey continues in Langkawi Art Biennale 2016. The all-encompassing theme in this coming event is called the ‘Exploration’. Moving forward with the ‘Migration‘ theme from the 1st biennale, participating artists will settle down and experience Langkawi in-depth. Artists would be exposed to new discoveries of multifaceted cultures and religions, an endless array of local food, varying lifestyle of the inhabitants, and even the tranquil nature of the countryside and natural beaches.

 

This theme intends to elevate the awareness to be environmentally conscious, and standing up for our one and only Mother Earth. But before that, ask yourself. Are you seriously aware of the constant changes of your surrounding environment? Due to the escalating economic activities like excessive tree-cutting, these have led to numerous negative impact to the environment. Global warming and major disasters like earthquakes and massive flood are actually caused by humans’ reckless actions. The ‘Exploration’ theme in LAB 2016 will be expressed in canvases and sculptures, igniting the drastic need to safeguard our world, although torn between the choices of economic demands and the love for our environment.
