In this joint talk, artists Hoo Fan Chon, Citra Sasmita, and Vuth Lyno unravel an almost year-long journey from overseas residencies—at HIAP (Finland), WIELS (Belgium), and Villa Arson (France), respectively—to the development of their research and creation of new works.
This talk is part of the exhibition, Hoo Fan Chon, Citra Sasmita, and Vuth Lyno: New Works, that concludes the first cycle of SEA AiR – Studio Residencies for Southeast Asian Artists in the European Union. As participating artists in the inaugural cycle of SEA AiR, Hoo Fan Chon (Malaysia), Citra Sasmita (Indonesia), and Vuth Lyno (Cambodia) have each been awarded a three-month-long residency at an art institution in Europe as well as funding for the creation of artworks. Stemming out of a year-long engagement, Hoo Fan Chon, Citra Sasmita, Vuth Lyno: New Works is the outcome of a multifaceted process made of journeys and institutional collaborations, fieldwork and encounters, research and artmaking.

SEA AiR is a new programme that aims to foster artistic exchange between Southeast Asia and the European Union, with Singapore as its hub. Developed by NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore (NTU CCA Singapore), the project is funded by the European Union and it offers emerging Southeast Asian artists a long-term engagement comprising a three-month residency in a EU country and the opportunity to create new works, inspired by the residency experience, that will be presented to the public in Singapore in a group exhibition curated by NTU CCA Singapore.
