Hymen – Ivan Lam


In Ivan Lam’s latest work, he focuses on the sexual politics attached to the female body. From the onset of menses, loss of virginity, childbirth, and finally menopause, blood appears and disappears to signal different stages of womanhood, the centrality of blood as a symbol of a woman’s life cycle is undeniable in Lam’s work. Across the twenty visually arresting images on display, each speaks of a different stage in the journey of womanhood, and will very possibly, conjure up a different memory.


Showing until April 29 at Wei-Ling Contemporary, located at Lot No RT-1, 6th Floor The Gardens Mall, Lingkaran Syed Putra, 59200 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Admission hours are Tuesday – Sunday 11am – 7pm. Please call +603 2282 8323 /+603 2260 1106 or email: for more information.
