In this solo exhibition, the Malaysian Chinese artist Minstrel Kuik revisits, edits and sequences the photographs that she took in Malaysia in 2007, imbuing them with a poetic structure. The work visualises an individual's negotiation with migration and colonial histories, nationalism, ethnicity and cultural identity.

About the Artist
Chinese Malaysian Minstrel Kuik was born in Pantai Remis in 1976. After a bachelor degree in fine art in Taiwan, she obtained her master degree in photography in Arles, France. As an actor in a multicultural society, Kuik continues to experience tension coming from different power structures, social norms, identities and interests. These experiences structure her perception of the world and the relation with the authority, and subsequently shaped her work, in which she believes the personal is political. Her recent work emphasizes on place and its history, and explores the dynamic space between the collective and the individual.

As a writer/curator, Zhuang focuses on the photographic practices in Southeast Asia. A 2010 recipient of the research grant from Prince Claus Fund (Amsterdam), Zhuang is an editorial board member of Trans-Asia Photography Review, a journal published by the Hampshire College and the University of Michigan Scholarly Publication Office. He has been invited to research residency programmes at Asia Art Archive, Hong Kong (2015) and Institute Technology of Bandung (2013). He is the contributing curator of the biennial Chiang Mai Photo Festival (2015, 2017). Published by NUS Press, Photography in Southeast Asia: A Survey (2016) is his fourth book. As an artist, Zhuang uses photography and text to visualise the Sinophone communities in Southeast Asia.

About “Photography in Southeast Asia”
Lumenvisum and Singaporean curator-writer, Zhuang Wubin are joining forces to present “Photography in Southeast Asia”. In the next three years, the collaboration will present three solo exhibitions annually, featuring artists from Southeast Asia who work predominantly in photography. There are two trajectories of enquiry for the participating artists: to use their art-making as a personal means to interrogate the idea of Chinese-ness, or to unpack the complex relationship between their place-of-origin (or residence) and China. Through the subjectivities of Southeast Asia, it aims to begin a dialogue with Hong Kong audience.
