Residencies Studio Sessions: The Flame of the Pacific, Artist Talk by Tita Salina and Irwan Ahmett (Indonesia), Artists-in-Residence

Description

28 Mar 2018, Wed 07:30 PM - 09:00 PM
Block 38 Malan Road, #01-05

In 2014, Tita Salina and Irwan Ahmett initiated Ring of Fire, a 10-year long research project that addresses manifold forms of vulnerability. Ring of Fire explores the intricate network of human-made collisions occurring in the eponymous geographical area that runs around the Pacific Ocean, from New Zealand to Chile stretching across Southeast Asia­—one of the deadliest places on earth due to plate movements and volcanic eruptions. Fascinated by how subterranean tectonic clashes find uncanny counterparts in the political turmoil above the ground, the artists will discuss the scope of Ring of Fire and reflect on how their work engage with humanitarian crisis, environmental disasters, and the darkest histories in the Southeast Asian region. They will also talk about the research initiated during their residency which, inspired by a historical moment of friction between Indonesia and Malaysia in 1965, tackles sabotage practices and haze threats.

The talk will take place in the artists’ studio.
