Valentine Willie Fine Art Gallery will be holding Cut: New Photography From South East Asia from 13th Feb to 1st Mar.

This groundbreaking exhibition of emerging photography from the Southeast Asian region focuses on young artists and the range of approaches to photography coming up now. A younger generation of artists and photographers is probing the tremendous potential of photography, exploiting its powerful associations with memory, voyeurism, identity, exoticism, truth and illusion. CUT brings together a sense of how photography is emerging as a discipline, or base medium in contemporary art from Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore.

Currently the line-up of 12 participating artists includes artists who work with photography as part of their practice such as Montri (Thailand), Poklong Anading (Philppines), Lena Cobangbang (Philippines), and Angki Purbandono (Indonesia), as well as artists who are focused more purely on photography such as Steve Tirona (Philippines), Sharon Lam (Malaysia), Tino Djumini (Indonesia) and Sherman Ong (Singapore).

The website contains interviews and images by the participating photographers.

The gallery’s located at 1st Floor, 17 Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru, 59100 Kuala Lumpur
