Press Release

39+ Art Space is pleased to present a two-artist presentation, exhibiting the works of Kemalezedine and Savanhdary Vongpoothorn. Landscape: Reinvention is Vongpoothorn’s first exhibition in Singapore. Living and working exclusively in a single location through our whole lives is no longer a possibility for the contemporary artist. Cultural dissonance, augmented by changing national boundaries from the twentieth century, tracks the uncertain landscapes of belonging for two artists, Kemalezedine (b. 1978, Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Lives and works in Bali, Indonesia) and Savanhdary Vongpoothorn (b. 1971, Laos. Lives and works in Australia). Where Kemalezedine negotiates Balinese painting, a part of yet distant to his Indonesian identity, Vongpoothorn traces the contours of a distant Laotian and Asian visuality, a heritage distant to her current Australian landscape. 

Landscape: Reinvention brings together two artists who work through their respective geographical and cultural inheritances in the genre of landscape, mapping insistently real yet abstract forms on canvas.
