Equation Of Vulnerability, An: A Certain Thereness, Being Suzann Victor & Susie Lingham Published by Contemporary Asian Arts Centre, Singapore 2002 Paper Back 111 pages Price: RM70.00

Add to cart
Contrary to what is accepted in the conventions of art and 'artwriting', -- for instance, the 'necessity' of writing, interpreting and 'tempering' the treacherous ambivalence of the image, or, of image illustrating or enfleshing the incorporeality of writing -- this book is simultaneously wrought from the warp and weft of image and text. The artists offer a breadth of peripheral visions, which is inclusive of the potential of the reader for whom, it is believed, private realms, can be prospected for and retrieved. This jointly authored book provides new perspectives of evaluating contemporary art and artists in Asia.

This book charts the development of this artist’s practice over the past fifteen years of her career, weaving together the compelling narratives she has constructed into a larger pictorial story, offering insight into her processes, thinking and research. However, the title of the publication also describes the context of these narratives, a ‘fluid world’ of changing borders, shifting cultural identities, histories forgotten and being written, and seeks to enrich our knowledge and understanding of the Southeast Asian social, cultural and political framework I-Lann’s practice operates within, through short essays by regional thinkers and commentators.
