Patterns of Change is a group show featuring four young artists from Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand. With stories that resonate within and beyond geographical borders, ‘Patterns of Change’ is an exhibition that weaves threads between the future generations of a selected few ASEAN member states. Each artsist expresses a political position unique to their own experience and the exhibition is a powerful and insightful response to the constantly evolving geo-political landscape of Southeast Asia. Through an array of diverse practices ranging from the traditional mediums of oil and watercolour to embroidery and photography, Patterns of Change is a multidisciplinary show that invites us to explore and deepen the bonds that we share with our regional neighbours.
As Southeast Asian countries begin to open their borders once more, a reflection of where we are headed together is pertinent. Youths are the key to a post-pandemic recovery and governments will need to engage and collaborate with them for a future that will be conducive for all to exist in harmony.
What then, are the attitudes of our future generation towards institutions of power, and what changes do they envision for the new world? Featuring artists Nature Shankar, Eunice Sanchez, Nyein Su, and Wana Wanlayangkoon, the exhibition presents a heartfelt and sincere message from each artist seeking to map out the region’s future.
