Title

Han Xuemei

Description

As part of the Asia Discovers Asia Meeting for Contemporary Performance held in Taipei in 2019, Han Xuemei began to research rest as a form of resistance, investigating the living conditions and the resting practices enacted by Indonesian and Filipino migrant workers in the capital of Taiwan.
Shifting between individual and communal dimensions, performed in public and private spaces, rest is a powerful counterpoint to the sprawling sense of exhaustion induced by the unrelenting emphasis on work, production, and consumption that prevails in contemporary society. Continuing this ongoing investigation, during the residency the artist will conduct interviews, archival research, and fieldwork to understand notions, practices, and postures of rest in different cultural, historical, and socio-political contexts across Singapore and Southeast Asia focusing specifically on the manifestations of “rest in public spaces”. Through potential collaborations with movement and sound artists, she aims to gradually develop an artistic and performative vocabulary of rest that maps out its personal, political, cultural, and economic meanings.
