Strait(s) Ahead


Strait(s) Ahead Invitation


“Straits Ahead” brings together numerous artists to play the role of explorers – which the ancestors of the current generations of Baba and Nyonyas essentially were – to imagine how the traditional artefacts would look like in 2014. The artist themselves come from various cultures and backgrounds, paving the way for them to disrupt the journey with little of no history of the Baba and Nyonya heritage, allowing them to cross into a different world to produce their creations. Niki Cheong conceptualised Strait(s) Ahead featuring the works of Nini Marini, KG Krishnan and Sarah Ameera using various media to reimagine these artefacts in the form of photos, videos and sound.
