Whatever does the archival mean, and how can one think of the archive beyond the (imagined) spaces of climate-controlled vaults and dusty libraries? Through the works of artists Jon Cuyson, Moe Myat May Zarchi and Miti Ruangkritya, the exhibition Heavy Rotations explores larger questions of how historical consciousness, social memories and private accounts are shaped and created in contemporary Southeast Asia. These lines of inquiry endeavour to propose a new vocabulary for rethinking the archive in this age of hyper-networked digital media.
