STAR-SHAPED INSTALLATION TO HIGHLIGHT UX2015
A four-storey high art installation in the shape of a 12-sided star will be
launched as part of this year’s Urban Xchange (UX) Festival.
The international public art festival is back for the second year to bring more murals to the state along with other works including the UX: Artisan Project and this large scale art installation by young Malaysian artist Ong Jun Hao.
Touted to be the biggest art installation in Malaysia, the star-shaped installation will be
placed within the concrete superstructure of a building along
Jalan Raja Uda in Seberang Perai.
Ong, who goes by Jun Ong, created the site-specific installation as the main highlight
for this year’s UX.
The 27-year-old architect will be making the one-of-its-kind installation with close to 500 metres of steel cables and LED strips, producing an abstract light installation of steel simply called “The Star.”
