Suggestions: 1. Cycling in an art gallery

Posted by on Friday, 12 June, 2009 at 11:59 AM. Filed under: Gallery


In today’s hectic dog eat dog government sector environment, many of our hardworking government workers find it hard to spare some time to appreciate the very exciting art scene that Kuala Lumpur has to offer. In order to promote the arts among government workers, CIPAN would like to suggest several exciting ways in which art appreciation can be combined with many of our nation’s favourite weekend activities.

‘Suggestions For Lunch Time Activities In KL For Busy Government Workers’ is a 13 episode weekly series aimed at promoting the arts among government workers. CIPAN proudly presents to you, Episode 1 : Cycling in an art gallery.


CIPAN are Dill Malik and Chi Too.

    I have often thought how great it would be to go roller skating (not blading, roller skating old school stylie) in a big museum. A roller disco with art. Preferably somewhere with a round space like the Guggenheim in New York or Petronas hahahaha. Or erect a big water slide down the ramps in the National Art Gallery…. Like Carsten Holler’s slide at Tate Modern. I copy and paste the blurb about it here and a link to Youtube:

    or Carsten Höller, the experience of sliding is best summed up in a phrase by the French writer Roger Caillois as a ‘voluptuous panic upon an otherwise lucid mind’. The slides are impressive sculptures in their own right, and you don’t have to hurtle down them to appreciate this artwork. What interests Höller, however, is both the visual spectacle of watching people sliding and the ‘inner spectacle’ experienced by the sliders themselves, the state of simultaneous delight and anxiety that you enter as you descend.

    To date Höller has installed six smaller slides in other galleries and museums, but the cavernous space of the Turbine Hall offers a unique setting in which to extend his vision. Yet, as the title implies, he sees it as a prototype for an even larger enterprise, in which slides could be introduced across London, or indeed, in any city. How might a daily dose of sliding affect the way we perceive the world? Can slides become part of our experiential and architectural life?

    Höller has undertaken many projects that invite visitor interaction, such as Flying Machine (1996) that hoists the user through the air, Upside-Down Goggles (1994/2001) that modify vision, and Frisbee House (2000), a room full of Frisbees. The slides, like these earlier works, question human behaviour, perception and logic, offering the possibility for self-exploration in the process.

    So thanks CIPAN for this, it made me smile, and made me feel very jealous. Can I come and cycle around the gallery too?
