Gajah Gallery is pleased to announce (Re)Imagining The Image, a group exhibition which invites eight prominent contemporary artists from Southeast Asia to confront and engage with images spanning from our region’s colonial era to our present age. The artists in the show draw from a plethora of photographs: from present-day personal pictures taken by the artists, to archival photographs that illumine lost histories in their countries. These original images are then copied, contrasted, concealed or subverted into vivid, independent objects in their own right—ranging from screen prints on fabric; ink on paper works; hyperrealist, oil on canvas paintings; or three-dimensional, mixed media pieces. It would be difficult to discuss photography in Southeast Asia without addressing the complicated histories attached to the medium, which had long been a tool of colonialism. What appear as innocent, idyllic 19th century portraits and landscapes taken by British photographers in Indonesia, for instance, were in fact highly staged, deceptive photographs that stripped away context and complexity to sell neatly represented images that served agendas of control. The works in the show aim to reclaim such images to reckon with difficult, painful pasts and uncover the invisible truths concealed in these historical pictures—revealing the tensions between those who are seen, who are unseen, and those who see. The artists open up conversations on wide-ranging, yet interconnected issues ranging from exoticism, colonialism, feminism, to unresolved personal and collective histories that have long plagued the region. Yet, though their contexts and concerns are diverse, the artists are bonded by a belief in how pictures and their histories are never static—rather, they hold the capacity to perpetually fuel our curiosity, broaden our ways of seeing the world, and help us understand more deeply how our past and present are continuously created, shaped and coloured. Whereas photographs in the region had occasionally been used to silence and suppress, the exhibit is thus a powerful testament to how photographs can in fact be used to do the reverse: spark agency, and liberate.
11) Contest: JustCo PUBG Mobile Championship
Organised by global coworking space JustCo, the gaming event invites you to relieve some stress and buddy up with fellow e-gamers in a virtual shootout – PlayUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) Mobile Championship. Compete against players from the region and the top three winning teams stand to walk away with $18,000 worth of prizes.
