[SEA] Territories of the Real and Unreal:

Fotografie in der zeitgenöss. Kunst Südostasiens. Langgeng Art Foundation, Yogyakarta. Bis 29. Jan. 2012
Nov 2011

[SEA] nennt sich eine von der Langgeng Art Foundation in Yogyakarta jährlich organisierte Veranstaltungserie, die zu einem tieferen Verständnis der zeitgenössischen Kunst Südostasiens und ihrer Kontexte beitragen soll. Die erste Ausstellung ist der Fotografie in der zeitgenössischen Kunst Südostasiens gewidmet.

We associate "territory" with notions of demarcated land, of "claimed space". Photographs represent territories of the seen, remembered and photographed, sites in which the "real" might be claimed and re-invented.

In many ways, photography can still be considered a new and empowering medium for Southeast Asian artists working with the image. Its immediacy, and its ambiguity, as a visual language of the real, allows for open and malleable readings of the complex and sometimes confounding, even incredible, realities which shape our peculiar experiences. Conversely, those realities invite fresh investigations into the meanings and potential of photographic images and processes.

This exhibition, curated by Adeline Ooi and Beverly Yong, gathers selected bodies of work by 16 Künstlerinnen und Künstler from around the region who employ photography as a primary medium, or as a key medium within multi-disciplinary practices, highlighting a range of strategies through which these artists have claimed photography as a site of cultural, geographic, social and personal discourse.
