Pangrok Sulap

PANGROK SULAP was founded in 2010 by Rizo Leong, Jirum Manjat and Mc Feddy in Sabah, East Malaysia, where it continues to operate. It is a collective of artists, musicians and social activists with the purpose of empowering communities through art. Pangrok Sulap emphasises the DIY spirit — hence its slogan “Jangan Beli, Bikin Sendiri” (Don’t Buy, Do-it-yourself). The collective tries to be as open as possible and welcomes the participation and involvement of people to work together on art projects as a means of communication. In the last few years, Pangrok Sulap has conducted workshops for communities and schools across Malaysia and participated in public talks such as TEDxUMSKAL in Labuan, Malaysia. Their prints have been exhibited in galleries and biennales internationally, including France (Les Extatiques, Paris La Défense, 2019), Malaysia (AFTERWORK, Ilham Gallery, 2017), Japan (SUNSHOWER: Contemporary Art from Southeast Asia 1980s to Now, National Art Center, 2017), India (Kochi-Muziris Biennale, 2018), Australia (The 9th Asia Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (APT9), QAGOMA, 2018), Philippines (Silingan Seni, Zamboanga City, 2017) and Taiwan (Negotiating The Future, Asian Art Biennial, 2017).
