Featuring works by 23 artists from Cambodia, Myanmar (Burma), Thailand and Vietnam,
"Shapeshifting: Contemporary Art from Southeast Asia" at 10 Chancery Lane Art Projects
in Hong Kong’s Chai Wan district will present some of the most interesting and
innovative voices from Southeast Asia. Focused on the region’s shifting range of art
practices, the exhibition focuses on four countries from Indochina: Myanmar, Thailand,
Cambodia and Vietnam. There is a certain connection that can be felt among the works
but the origins and dialogues in play all have different sources that are particular to the artists’ personal backgrounds paired with the national, religious, political or social identity of each one.
