The exhibition features the on-going projects by artists Adeline Kueh and Betty Susiarjo. Coming from two different narratives, yet sharing similar sensibilities and poetic voice in their works, both artists bring together recent installation, video, sound and photography works to contemplate the notions of Umbra.
Umbra exists as a shadow, the subtler fragment of the perceptible. It often goes unnoticed as real, yet its presence denotes that somewhere nearby is an actual occluding body. Umbra is also about the darkest part of ourselves, the part that signals the longing for the absences and things lost. Illusion, dusk and the spectral are intimated by the two artists, attesting to the nuances of language and that which complements the visible.
