Minstrel Kuik: She who has no self

15 Feb 2020 - 10 May 2020

Curated by Alison Eggleton

Minstrel Kuik considers and questions the politics of place, familial and cultural identity and how this intersects with personal experience. Born in Malaysia of Chinese ancestry, she lives and works in Kajang a suburban neighbourhood on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur. Negotiating the tensions of different ideologies and social bounds is an everyday occurrence. Not only do these daily experiences position her between the political society and the authorities, they shape her artistic practice by providing necessary comparative grounds for her to ponder on the complexities of our modern life.

Presented as part of PHOTO2020 International Photography Festival.
