Bulgarian experience for Sabah sculptors

27th June, 2018

By MOHD IZHAM B. HASHIM

KOTA KINABALU: An all-expenses paid trip to Bulgaria for a two-week cultural exchange awaits the top three talents in a competition in the inaugural International Sculpture Experience Sabah 2018.

Bulgarian artist Ventsislav Petrov said the exchange programme will be fully funded by the Mayor of Dobrich, Yordan Yordanov from the municipality of Dobrich. The winners will also be given gallery space to exhibit their artwork.

“We are pleased to hold this competition for local sculptors to create artwork which will be showcased at the final exhibition at the Sabah Art Gallery in November,” he told reporters at the press conference yesterday.

Petrov said the competition will witness local artists working with four Bulgarian sculptors and Sabah’s very own talent, Japson Wong, to produce art pieces.

The month-long International Sculpture Experience Sabah 2018 is the first event held to celebrate sculpture art in the country which will be officially launched on Nov 1 untill Dec 1.

The aim of the programme is to inculcate greater awareness and appreciation for sculpture art as well as uncover new talents from Sabah and provide opportunities to work together with international artists.

Meanwhile, Sabah Art Gallery Curator, Jennifer P Linggi, said the programme is timely to introduce sculpture art to the local art scene.

“Sculpture is a very intriguing approach to art, and it gives us much pleasure to host the exhibition which will feature works by gifted artists, and expose and promote local talents to the wonderful world of sculpture art,” she said.

The competition, according to Petrov, is open to local artists between ages 18 and 40, who have until October 1 to submit their artworks to the official “International Sculpture Experience Sabah 2018” facebook page which will be available in July. “Accepted artworks are sculpture, installation or any other three-dimensional object,” he said.
