The group exhibition brings together works by internationally established and emerging artists who have deep connections to Southeast Asia, while also working extensively across the globe.
Appropriating its title from áp vong, the Vietnamese secularised ritual of invoking the ‘dead’, the exhibition evokes the ‘ghosts’ – ‘glitches’ – in the archive. Through a range of artistic practices, including a variety of lens-based works, drawing and mixed media installation, the artists disrupt dominant systems of knowledge, reclaiming and reconstructing the erased, invisible and fictional to engage with the historical and contested paradigm of ‘Southeast Asia’.
Artists include Korakrit Arunanondchai, Noel Ed De Leon, Ho Rui An, Vong Phaophanit + Claire Oboussier Studio, Vandy Rattana, Amy Lee Sanford Studio, Sim Chiyin, Erika Tan, Sung Tieu, Tuan Mami, Boedi Widjaja, Sau Bin Yap
Public programme and publication contributors: Panggah Ardiyansyah, Eva Bentcheva, Pamela Corey, Wim Manuhutu, Ong Jo-lene, Joanna Wolfarth
