A Bogus Collaboration with Dhavinder Singh.

Tagistan is the latest body of work by multi-disciplinary artist Dhavinder Singh. The exhibition consists of installations, stop-motion video work plus drawings embodying the total transformation at Jalan Chan Sow Lin witnessed by the artist having grown up there.

From an old industrial area to one of the heaviest reconstruction sites in Kuala Lumpur, the ‘development’ has been excessive. The title Tagistan is inspired by the word tagi, loosely translated as ‘storage’ and stan meaning; place of. The artist pays homage to the place, the people and the spirit long forgotten by society with his application of the Arte Povera movement, formed through a process of redeploying found objects at Jalan Chan Sow Lin into the world of Tagistan. Dhavinder tells new stories from where the old ones were stored, creating a present from the past.


Dhavinder Singh (b.1983, Kuala Lumpur) has a deep affiliation with the mechanisms of development in the city. His artworks are based on intuitions drawn from personal recollections and narratives derived by the concept of space, both interior and exterior. The constant change of the built environment around him and his fascination of works that are interrelated has since produced series like ‘Test Tanah’ (2019), ‘Recollectus’ (2016) and ‘formalandscapes’ (2012).
