Condition Report – ESCAPE from the SEA

A contemporary art exhibition featuring artists from Japan, Malaysia and the Southeast Asian region, Condition Report – ESCAPE from the SEA seeks to explore the complex layers of politics of the imagined community and the poetics and possibility of “drowning on land”. It frames the sea as both real and fictional, representative of geo-political boundaries as well as a state of boundlessness.
Curated by Yap Sau Bin and Hiroyuki Hattori, with the support of Alice Sarmiento, Kurnia Yunita Rahayu, Souliya Phoumivong and Sze Ying Goh as part of a curatorial development programme initiated by The Japan Foundation Asia Center in Bangkok, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur and Manila in 2015 and 2016.
