Taipei Times– Transcending borders

In the Taipei Times– Transcending borders by Leong Siok Hui
A Malaysian artist’s quest for identity leads him to Taiwan to explore the Austronesian links between the two countries.

“question and deconstruct the nationally-constructed ideals of race, culture and religion that tries to define what and who its people are”

“document the social circumstances between rural and urban societies and to understand cultural identities — how people live, their spirituality and social environment, in contrast to how the country projects their identities”

“Being conscious of the construct, the fragility and predicament of our times, and the reflection of human condition, perhaps it has become a pursuit to find a future beyond borders.”
