Enjoy Japanese and Southeast Asian artwork at ESCAPE from the SEA
This exhibition showcases art that explore the politics of borders
The Japan Foundation, Kuala Lumpur presents ESCAPE from the SEA, a group exhibition featuring 14 contemporary artists from Malaysia, Japan and Southeast Asia. From video installations to performance pieces, these curated works of art all center around the theme of identity, the sense of belonging and the history of the border politics in this region and beyond. Ranging from personal experiences to a wider view of geographical borders and even the erasing of this sort of separation entirely, ESCAPE from the SEA is an interesting way to tackle this pertinent issue.
