About the Artist
Muhammad Izdi (b.1986) is an emerging visual artist with an ever-evolving practice. He has exhibited in numerous shows, locally and internationally. In the last year, he has presented his works in Lyon and Lille, France, and participated in a residency in Paris.

About Izdi's work in Cannot Be Bo(a)rdered

Limb from Limb appropriates the local myth ‘Singapura Dilanggar Todak’ (The Swordfish Attack on Singapore), specifically the scene where the king commanded his men to stand along the coast, in an attempt to use their legs as a shield against the attacking swordfish. The resulting casualties were massive.

Izdi sees this as a representation of how skateboard culture never backed down despite its rejection from the mainstream. Like the myth, it has continued through generations, and has instead been an inspiration in art, fashion, music and lifestyle. More than a mode of transportation, it’s a statement and philosophy.
