Description

Feature in exhibiton review 1 Jan 2021

"Hsu’s curation is a radical contextualization of time and space. A mélange of disavowed continental connections bleed into and scar the present. Lucy Davis’s film Jalan Jati (Teak Road), 2012, is the artist’s attempt at tracking the origins of her scavenged teak bed through Southeast Asia’s history and topography. The piece testifies to art’s cosmopolitan potential, even amid ongoing lockdowns and travel limitations. Instead of simply reaffirming the importance of supposedly global perspectives, the exhibition speaks to the discomfiting complexities of regional specificity."
