Event Details

Group Exhibition – ‘Reframing Roots’ 

14 January – 6 February 2022 

Gajah Gallery, Singapore 

‘Reframing Roots’ gathers works from artists from Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, and the United States. As the world grappled with drastic changes and transitions over the past two years, artists were not spared from having to face the fragility of their foundations: the places, communities, and traditions that were once the pillars of their identities. 

These artists have directly or subliminally confronted what it means to be rooted, whether turning towards their cultural heritage, the landscapes of their hometowns, or the complicated histories from which they came. Rootedness took shape in diverse ways: for some it meant going back to a concrete place; for others it was forming or reforming tradition; and for some, it meant embracing being in-between two worlds, searching for what it means to belong in the face of dislocation and a growing distance from home.
