The group exhibition brings together works by internationally established and emerging artists who have deep connections to Southeast Asia, while also working extensively across the globe.

Appropriating its title from áp vong, the Vietnamese secularised ritual of invoking the ‘dead’, the exhibition evokes the 'ghosts' - 'glitches' - in the archive. Through a range of artistic practices, including a variety of lens-based works, drawing and mixed media installation, the artists disrupt dominant systems of knowledge, reclaiming and reconstructing the erased, invisible and fictional to engage with the historical and contested paradigm of ‘Southeast Asia’.

Artists:
Korakrit Arunanondchai, Noel Ed De Leon, Ho Rui An, Vong Phaophanit + Claire Oboussier Studio, Amy Lee Sanford Studio, Sim Chiyin, Erika Tan, Sung Tieu, Tuan Mami, Vandy Rattana, Boedi Widjaja, Sau Bin Yap
Curated by Annie Jael Kwan
