This international workshop moderated by Claire Roberts coincides with the exhibition Xiao Lu: Impossible Dialogue (4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art, Sydney). It brings together artists, art critics and art historians to discuss the question of gender and art in China, as well as in Indonesia and Singapore. The workshop will begin with short presentations and the viewing videos and slides of performance art works by Xiao Lu, Arahmaiani, and Suzann Victor, followed by group discussion. Conversation will focus on the practice of these artists and their choice of medium as well as the reception of their work in local, regional and global contexts.
I presented a paper titled “Without Body: Performing Suzann Victor.” In this presentation, I proposed that an analysis of the imaging of the Singapore river by artists over history could provide insight to Suzann’s work.
