The Crescent Moon: Sharing the Same Moon
Venue: Dewan Makam Nordin, Kapitan Keling Mosque
Time:10:00 AM – 06:00 PM
This month-long exhibition will use intimate photographs and personal narratives to give a voice to the community of Indian Muslims within the Kapitan Keling Mosque Community whose lives are deeply connected to the mosque, while also providing a unique opportunity to reflect on the similarities and differences between people of two countries who share the same faith.
Together with local photographer Mas Mohd Farid Rahman, New Zealand writer Adrienne Jansen will interview members of this diverse Penang community and will document the memories and observations they share. The images and stories from the Kapitan Keling Mosque community will be shown together with selected photographs and text from the original Crescent Moon exhibition, which documents the everyday lives of New Zealand Muslims. As indicated by Jansen’s sympathetic insights, and the photographer’s keen eye for capturing the subtle moments of daily interaction, these individuals come from vastly different backgrounds and yet remain unified by their shared beliefs.
