This collaborative exhibition explores hidden family histories through photography, installation, and artist books by Adrian Jing Song and Phương Lê. Both raised in Southeast Asian households, their works delve into themes of ‘the unspoken’ and ‘the withheld’ within their diasporic families. The exhibition invites viewers to engage with the family archive as an indecipherable mystery, open to interpretation and possibility.
