How does conservation come into play when restaging artworks made of outdated technology?
In this one-off tour experience with the curators and artwork conservators behind “See Me, See You”, delve into the curatorial narratives and specialised conservation techniques unique to video installation art from the 1980s and 1990s in Southeast Asia.

About the Exhibition
Join us on a journey back in time to and explore the history of video installation art with “See Me, See You: Early Video Installation of Southeast Asia”. This two-part exhibition offers a fascinating look at the pivotal moments when video installation first emerged in the 1980s and 1990s.
Through experimentation, these ten Southeast Asian Artists combined installation, performance, audience participation together with video, leading to a new form of art as a result of their interdisciplinary approach.
In its first instalment, featuring works by Apinan Poshyananda (Thailand), Baharudin Mohd Arus (Malaysia), Chng Nai Wee (Singapore), Johnny Manahan (Philippines) and Jean Marie Syjuco (Philippines).
The second part, opening in October, will showcase works by Heri Dono (Indonesia), Hasnul Saidon (Malaysia), Ray Langenbach (Malaysia), Vincent Leow (Singapore) and Krisna Murti (Indonesia).
