The BEFF Eco Art Carnival features the collaborative work of artists who will be showcasing eco-themed art installations. The carnival is also a great opportunity to check out and purchase the art and craftwork of local craftmakers and artisans. There will be three main art groups participating, namely Persatuan Seni Visual Sabah (PSVS), Decorative Art and Craft Club and the collective from University College Sabah Foundation (UCSF).

One of the artistic highlights in BEFF this year is an Orang Utan Art Installation, called ‘Love Me, Love My Home’ featuring painted portraits of Sabah’s iconic primate. These portraits – which are also for sale – will be symbolically hung on branches along the corridor leading to the venue, replicating the natural habitat of the Orang Utan. Visitors are invited to write and hang their eco-friendly pledge on these branches.

We must acknowledge the fact that our world supports a huge variety of life and we need to respect this. We need to share and live together and not rob the animal kingdom of their natural heritage,” she said.
