I was able to complete a performative element for the larger project, The Jungle Book, an examination of fact and fiction in the Mekong subregion, at Asiatopia 2008 held at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre. The performance draws from literature, popular media, and traditions in art installation, performance and typography. The next components planned include photography and academic presentation. Images of the performance can be viewed on flickr.
From Bangkok, I traveled to Yangon, Myanmar in connection with our research for the upcoming Asia Pacific Triennale (APT6). This time, my research was very compact and focused, and I was able to meet with all of the artists I needed to. I'm happy to see that the contemporary arts community in Burma is doing well. Images of the research trip can be viewed on flickr.
