Poodien has also been a member of various art collectives such as Buka Kolektif, a collective which aims to create a larger awareness and discourse about performance art, specifically in Malaysia. Pootien’s recent exhibitions include; Merapi Eruption (House of Matahati, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 2010), 3 Young Contemporaries (Valentine Willie Fine Art, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 2010) and Once Upon A Time In Malaysia/Al-­Kesah (MAP White Box, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 2010).
