across the way gathers the constellations of Salty Xi Jie Ng’s interdimensional practice and presents her long-term body of work as Baibai Research Group, a transdisciplinary lab that encompasses spirit studies embedded in the everyday vernacular. The exhibition unfolds as portals between realms, in a conveyance of whispers and creative manifestations that reverberate through the lush, mystical landscapes of the living and the dearly departed. In this multiverse, we are invited by the artist to engage in acts of remembrance, foregrounded by her research experiments with the Ancestor Dream Visitation Repository and her ongoing relationship with religious good merchant Ban Kah Hiang, and activated as performances, rituals, and intimate encounters through individual and collective journeys across the cosmos.
