vivid conditions

For months, a stream of unsettling events has flooded the world as the deleterious effects of rapid globalization and the nationalist backlash it has prompted shake the foundations of nation states. How is it possible to remain optimistic in what seems to be a downward spiral of grim tragedies and barbaric politics? In the November/December issue of ArtAsiaPacific, we look at artists who in spite of, or because of, all the dire news, have reimagined different possibilities for art’s relationship to the world.We begin with Etel Adnan, the Lebanese-American writer, essayist, filmmaker, poet and artist whose family sought refuge in Beirut following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire roughly a century ago; she then left her home city at the outset of the country’s sectarian civil war. Independent curator Daniel…

one on one praneet soi on jean-pierre gorin

PRANEET SOI “ . . . the axis of geography as against the axis of history . . .” 2016 A portrait of Jean-Pierre Gorin. Pencil on paper, 29 x 21 cm. Courtesy the artist.Jean-Pierre Gorin walked into my studio at the University of California at San Diego late one night and said to me: “The only interest in traveling is to lose one’s luggage.” We became friends. JP is a complex figure. A filmmaker. A teacher. A storyteller. And together with Jean-Luc Godard, a co-founder of the Dziga Vertov Group. Seduction is imbued within his mercurial temperament.Gorin’s love for the essay privileges nuanced storytelling over the grand gesture. In his construction of an essay-film, I find parallels with the construction of space in historical miniature painting. Gorin’s extrapolations on…

dispatch kuala lumpur

View of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, with the Petronas Twin Towers in the distance. Photo by Zukiman Mohamad.Whether in politics or culture, Malaysia has never really gained the kind of international prominence that her immediate neighbors in Southeast Asia (such as Indonesia, Thailand or Singapore) have over the past decade. Recently rated as the second-most corrupt country on a list of emerging economies in Time magazine, Malaysia is, in the eyes of critics, practiced in mediocrity. Even in the art of corruption, it remains merely second best. On the other hand, Malaysia’s relative obscurity on the international stage might be the result of its racially plural makeup. One could say the very idea of Malaysia is resistant to convenient profiling.It is therefore commonly said that the Malaysian art scene is a…

the point art-making in a troubled world

How does a person—for example, Kafka— sincerely believe that he must throw away his fate (and to him, to throw away his fate is to stay close to the truth), that he must become a writer? Perhaps this is an impenetrable mystery. And if there really is an answer to the question, then it can only be said that this mystery comes from some sort of artistic license (an ability to indiscriminately influence every moment or every outcome—positive or negative).—Maurice Blanchot, “De Kafka à Kafka” (1981)Last night, I was watching the news on television before bed. Reports on the boy rescued from war-torn Syria, the ailing dog in Taipei that was abandoned, agitated mainland Chinese women and pro-establishment politicians in Hong Kong were all muddled together in my head as…
