NSW

Elemental and Correspondence

Ongoing

Art Gallery of NSW

In the lower gallery, the exhibition Elemental investigates the natural elements of earth, water and fire, to which some traditions add wood, metal, void, and wind or air. The works on display illuminate our understanding of each of these elemental groupings, and the vital connections between them.

On the ground level, Correspondence highlights the role of contact, contestation and exchange across geographical and cultural boundaries, revealing connections between people and places which at times result in tension and unrest. See pp4 -7 in the December 2022 issue of the TAASA Review.

SOUTH AUSTRALIA

QUEENSLAND

Hiraki Sawa ‘O’

9 Sept 2023 – 17 Mar 2024

GOMA

O  2009 is a subtle reflection on time and motion, travel and dislocation. Having lived between London and Japan, cultural mobility has formed a key reference in Sawa’s work, with his narrative sequences often about journeys into real, subconscious or imagined worlds. In recent years, Sawa’s practice has expanded into elaborate multi-screen installations, enabling him to explore multiple narratives and perspectives. 

International

Jegi: Korean Ritual Objects

6 August 2022 – 15 October 2023

Metropolitan Museum, New York

Features the various types of ritual vessels and accessories that were used for performing ancestral rites (jesa) during the Joseon dynasty (1392–1910) and entombed, as well as the kinds of musical instruments played at state events. In contemporary Korean society, no longer constrained by prescriptive state rules, jegi inspire contemporary artists and influence the form of everyday tableware.

Living Pictures: Photography in Southeast Asia

2 December 2022 – 20 August 2023

National Gallery, Singapore

Explores the changing roles of photography in Southeast Asia—from its beginnings as a tool of European exploration to the ‘performance’ of studio portraits; from the incomplete realities of war to the rise of fine art; and finally to the memes and selfies that saturate social media today.
