State of Motion 2019: A Fear of Monsters investigates the histories and trajectories of Asian horror and focuses on the monsters at the intersections of art, popular culture and cinema.


From the multilingual Pontianak to the genre defining oily man who seeped his way across borders, monsters have entertained and united us through our fear. Audiences should be very afraid.


Curated by Kathleen Ditzig, State of Motion features artists Yason Banal, Heman Chong, Fyerool Darma, Ho Rui An, Ho Tzu Nyen, Viet Le, Lekker, Shubigi Rao, Sung Tieu and Yee I-Lann.
