The orchid; the wasp

The orchid; the wasp is a visual arts exhibition that follows the proposition of becoming, which is understood as the possibility for diversity, multiplicity and change. It is about forming alliances between artistic identities, seeing them as subjective beings with the potential to interchange or become something else through a unique symbiosis.

The narrative of ‘becoming’ alludes to one of many potentials for multiplicity beyond imitation, as French philosophers Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari suggest. To artists, this may involve adopting a new frame of reference, negotiation or exploring experimental perspectives in art-making. Through mutual dialogue, they develop and motivate further intersections of intergroup contact and artistic mediation.

The exhibition is organised by Zulkhairi Zulkiflee and Racy Lim. Artists featured include Anthony Chin, Ivan David Ng, Leroy Sofyan, Liana Yang, Liyana Ali and Thesupersystem.
