Created especially for RIUH this December 2018, this live art installation is possibly the first in the world and definitely the first in Malaysia. Homegrown contemporary artist Haafiz Shahimi (aka 'The Burning Man') grants a never-before-seen sneak peek into his art-making process across a series of three RIUH sessions. The final artwork will be exhibited at formal exhibition to be announced at a later date.
