No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia: Khadim Ali

No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia: Khadim Ali

Rating
0.0 stars

No Country investigates the notion of culture as fundamentally borderless, revealing networks of influence and exchange within the region. The exhibition title underscores a central question: How is the designation South and Southeast Asia defined and understood internationally? No Country considers the impact of ethno-nationalism, historical colonization, and present-day globalization on identities in the region and examines how the region is marked culturally by its intertwined histories and shared social, religious, and creative traditions.

No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia: Navin Rawanchaikul

No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia: Navin Rawanchaikul

Rating
0.0 stars

Born in 1971 in Chiang Mai, Thailand, Navin Rawanchaikul seeks ways to connect art with the lives of everyday people. Places of Rebirth is motivated by the artist’s journey back to his family’s homeland. Although born and raised in Thailand, his family emigrated from India in 1947. On his return, Rawanchaikul interviewed Indian immigrants of his parent’s generation who now live in his hometown of Chiang Mai, attempting to understand their journey to Thailand and the process of making a new home there. Their stories support the fact that globalization has brought rapid and continuing change, constantly remaking geographies and the people who inhabit them and often causing the idea of home itself to be detached from a fixed conceptual location. Rawanchaikul describes his own complicated
childhood, from growing up in Thailand and being perceived as an outsider to coming to terms with his Indian descent and using it as his motivation for creating art.

No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia: Shilpa Gupta

No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia: Shilpa Gupta

Rating
0.0 stars

The end of British rule in India on August 17, 1947, saw the creation of the Radcliffe Line, a boundary between India and the newly created Pakistan that represented an attempt to divide a 175,000-square-mile territory populated by 88 million people. Pakistan was to become a Muslim homeland, while the new India would become a secular state with a Hindu majority. In response, 14 million people left their homes to seek refuge with their own kind. Many were slaughtered by the opposing side, some starved or died of exhaustion, and others were afflicted by those diseases typically suffered by undernourished refugees. An estimated one million people perished.

Artist Shilpa Gupta (b.1976), who lives and works in Mumbai, India, asks: “Can you imagine fencing a border?” In response to her country’s tense political situation, she has made a handwoven ball of thread encased in a vitrine. The work addresses threat, fear, and religious prejudice via an elegant, poetic sculptural form. As updated in 2007, the Indo-Pakistan border is 1188.5 miles long. Alluding to this vast distance through the application of a 14.9-to-1 ratio, Gupta has wound eighty miles of thread into an egg-shaped ball. This inert mass stands in contrast to the volatile border itself.

No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia: Tang Da Wu

No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia: Tang Da Wu

Rating
0.0 stars

Tang Da Wu was born in 1943. Growing up, he disliked studying English and mathematics and was often scolded by his teachers. He preferred playing after school with neighborhood children, and also enjoyed drawing, gaining further confidence when his high-school paintings were accepted into art competitions.

In 1988, Tang founded the Artists Village, Singapore’s first art colony, with the aim of encouraging experimentation. Members of the Village were among the first non-traditional artists in Singapore, and also among the first to begin practicing installation and performance art. There, Tang has mentored younger artists and shared his knowledge of artistic developments in other parts of the world.

No Country: Contemporary Art for South and Southeast Asia: Vincent Leong

Rating
0.0 stars

Vincent Leong’s (b.1978) work comments on Malaysia’s complicated history and diverse composition. Over the centuries, original Malays have mingled with immigrants from Arabia, India, China, Thailand, Indonesia, and Europe, mixing their cultures into a collaged national identity. While outsiders may perceive a tolerant multicultural society, ethnic loyalties remain strong and there are undeniable tensions that still contradict the idea of a unified Malaysian identity. The ethnic and cultural differences within Malaysia have created both cultural richness and conflict and remain a sensitive topic that threatens to surface in political, religious, and economic disagreement.
