Architecture is body and vessel. It is a physical manifestation, an appendage from the vision of its maker. Beyond its status as habitable monuments and corporeal representative of human thoughts and cultures, architecture denotes our individual and collective engineering of meta-structures necessary in moulding the essence of how we chose to design our futures.
Future Love is Saiful Razman's reflection of personal pasts and a manifest of processes in moving forward. Roofs, floors, windows, doors, the architecture here are allegorical signposts constructed primarily of tissues and gauze, delicate materials assembled with poetry in the hands of a master builder.
Saiful Razman (b. 1980) graduated from the University (Institute) Teknologi Mara, Selangor, Malaysia with a Bachelor of Arts in Painting (2003).
