A joint exhibition with artist Lydia Chai. We met in art school in New Zealand and became friends. I returned to Kuala Lumpur; Lydia now lives in Auckland.
In this series of drawings, installations and video at 67 Tempinis Gallery, we explored ideas of distance and friendship in relation to artistic collaboration. The result was an invented landscape of two very different artists, living far apart, engaged in conversation with each other and the world around us.
Simon Soon wrote an essay called Callous Conversations: Dialogue in Space, published in this exhibition’s catalogue. You can read that essay here.
