A group exhibition exploring the intersections of the three Southeast Asian artists' responses to the personal narratives that have shaped their identities.

Curated by Peruke Projects in collaboration with A.I., the exhibition examines the performances of three diasporic Southeast Asian multi-disciplinary artists, constructed around the rituals concerning the rebirths of their oeuvres and the marking of time.

These three artists living between cultures, with transnational hybrid identities, are brought together for the first time alongside one another. This formidable trio – Anida Yoeu Ali (b.1974, Cambodia), Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen (b.1970, Philippines), and Quỳnh Lâm (b.1988, Vietnam) - brings to a new audience an opportunity to reflect upon their experiences of crisis, displacement, and otherness, through their rituals, renewals, responses and provocations.

Presented as an installation of videos, photographs, symbolic objects and artefacts, and two participatory performances by Rasmussen and Lam, the artists document the passing of time in each of their ceremonies. Ali’s The Red Chador installation illustrates the death and rebirth of a provocative and politicized alter ego. Rasmussen’s Today is your performance demonstrates the cyclical nature of life, while Lam’s Price of Humanity performance illuminates the tumultuous journey of a nomadic outcast.
