Rakan KL Walk Photo Exhibition
What if the places that we used to know doesn’t exists anymore? How would we remember these places, the people who lived and worked there and how it used to be?
That is what three core members of the RakanKL, Ngeow Chow Ying, Dennis Ong and Ben Toh set out to do with their photo documentary to preserve the heritage images of Kuala Lumpur. Some of these heritage places no longer exists due to development and destruction forever changing the ambience of the place and the way of life in KL.
Their monochrome prints are exhibited at The Refinery Art Gallery, #A-d6, 801 Jalan Sentul. https://goo.gl/maps/tRXPxGP886A2 from 14th to 30th September.
Viewing hours: 1:00pm to 6:00pm daily, for appointments please call +6012 205 0716
RakanKL is a people’s movement for heritage preservation of Kuala Lumpur, formed in 2012 as a gathering of concerned citizens and civil society advocates due to two major controversies related to urban-planning, heritage destruction and land-use policies in KL – construction of the 100-storey Menara Warsaw on the now defunct Tunku Park, and the construction of the MRT line which poses destruction and damage of buildings on Jalan Sultan.
