The exhibition brings together works by five artists living in Asia whose practices explore social, cultural, and/or political issues.
Among their topics, urbanisation, the vanishing of local heritage, and human propensity to respond to these via escapism and dream-like clichés. Each one of these artists creates images in response to their immediate surroundings in a range of mediums spanning from video, sculpture, installation, to object and painting. Their outputs are personal and meaningful to them, but they are also available to be invested by the audience for ultimately, these narratives, landscapes, and concerns, aren’t so far away from our general human condition.
