Malaysia was once the largest producer of tin in the world. This exhibition demonstrates how remnants of the tin industry continue to shape the physicality of the country’s urban environments while perpetuating historical patterns in the national psyche.

Hoffmann’s and Morris’s images of immense, reclaimed mining landscapes and sacred pewter talismans reflect the relationship of Chinese miners and Malay landowners to the seemingly magical power of tin as a catalyst for prosperity.
