Paper Trails Between Lion and Swan

Phase 2:  Old Customs House, Artsource, Fremantle (June 2024)

Paper Trails Between Lion and Swan is a two-phase collaborative exhibition curated by Harrison Waed See, Desmond Mah, and Yeo Chee Kiong featuring 6 artists from Singapore and 6 from Perth/Boorloo. These two coastal and culturally diverse locations are bound by intersecting histories of British colonisation in the Asia Pacific region. To renegotiate these intersections in a contemporary context, the artists have explored paper and textiles as a metaphor for diaspora, trade and identity.
