Khairulddin Wahab

A Fine Arts graduate from LASALLE College of the Arts, Khairulddin Wahab’s artistic practice is informed by his research on the philosophy of photography and the semiotics of images. Seeking to question the photographic image as a site for memory and knowledge, he is particularly interested in the human impulse to record, preserve and share images, especially in an increasingly digitally mediated world where more images are being produced, consumed and accumulated than ever before. Primarily a painter, Khairulddin’s work inquire into the philosophical implications of capturing and accumulating this visual material. Khairulddin has participated in many group exhibitions in Singapore, Malaysia and Italy.

About Artwork

Rumah Filem
(Film House)

This sculptural work draws inspiration from the traditional wooden houses often seen in Malay-language films of the 50s and 60s, and that have now come to represent a nostalgic attachment to a particular cultural history. Within the hollow interior of the structure hangs 20 suspended canvases, symbolising the Malay-language films made between 1947 to 1967, beginning with the release of the first post-WWII Malay-language film Singapura di Waktu Malam (Night Time in Singapore), to the closure of the Malay Film Productions Ltd. Each canvas is a palimpsest of the films made during those years. Through a variety of mediums and treatments such as dyeing, encaustic and paint, the canvas becomes an embodiment of the aged films. The aged aesthetic bears the mark of time—a facet of film as a time-based medium and its materiality on 35mm film. The artwork is part painting, sculpture, monument, and cenotaph of all the films produced during those golden years.
