Not far from the affluent KL neighbourhood of Mont Kiara, a tiny rural enclave passes the days in stoic calm even as it continues to shrink from the high-rise condominiums that spring up around it. Kampung Segambut Dalam is growing smaller with every passing year, but visitors may be surprised by how strong the community’s daily rhythms still are.
Realising that time is running out for the kampung, the photographers of The Print Room studio and gallery have decided to document its existence before it disappears forever. Several emerging photographers, including four art students from the nearby Garden International School, have been visiting Kampung Segambut Dalam day and night to record the people, animals, shops, stalls and homes that exist under the every-growing shadow of development.
The “Village” opens 11th April 2015 7pm – 9.30pm and will be exhibited until Sunday 17th June 2015
Open every weekend 2pm – 7pm
