Video installation is a common
form of contemporary art today. Yet, before the sleek projection technologies
which dominate our present-day encounter of this form, these early video
installation works emerged across Southeast Asia in the 1980s and 1990s.
These artists broke out of the
conventions of painting and sculpture, they turned to installation,
performance, video and their combination, not bound by a strict category of
Video installation was a
culmination of this interdisciplinarity, allowing artists to provide layers of
space and time to the viewers’ experience.
Several of these works have been
forgotten and have languished in artists' collections for decades. This
exhibition will spearhead the recreation of many of these artworks and enables
the audience’s direct experience with these works.
