About “Photography in Southeast Asia”
Lumenvisum and Singaporean curator-writer, Zhuang Wubin are joining forces to present “Photography in Southeast Asia”. In the next three years, the collaboration will present three solo exhibitions annually, featuring artists from Southeast Asia who work predominantly in photography. There are two trajectories of enquiry for the participating artists: to use their art-making as a personal means to interrogate the idea of Chinese-ness, or to unpack the complex relationship between their place-of-origin (or residence) and China. Through the subjectivities of Southeast Asia, it aims to begin a dialogue with Hong Kong audience.
