Jimei x Arles International Photo Festival : Archipelago : Paradise Revisit


Archipelago: Paradise Revisit from “Greetings from Asia” section.

“Greetings from Asia” section has highlighted the photography scene of various Asian countries, including Thailand (2022), Singapore (2021), Japan (2020), India (2019), South Korea (2018), and Indonesia (2017). This year, it presents a group show entitled Archipelago: Paradise Revisit, curated by Singaporean curator Gwen Lee, a member of Jimei x Arles Art Committee. This exhibition showcases artists from the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, and Cambodia. The artists include ANG Song Nian, Charles Lim Yi Yong, Eiffel Chong, Elizabeth Gabrielle Lee, LIM Sokchanlina, Miti Ruangkritya, MM Yu, nor, Poklong Anading, Wawi Navarroza, and Wilfred Lim.

Archipelago presents a contemporary revisit to strangely familiar sights and conditions situated within Southeast Asia. Based loosely on a cluster of islands in reference to the geographical trait, the exploration extends across time and space for man’s pursuit of paradise. The journey depicts encounters that are shaped by invisible forces of personal anecdotes, migrant sojourns, and the colonial past.” – Gwen Lee.
