About

The Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) London invited Asia’s prominent director Ong Keng Sen to bring his performances to London, as well as to curate a season of contemporary work from Phnom Penh, Bangkok, Jakarta and Singapore.

Southeast Asia’s new generation of musicians, directors and visual artists are riding the crest of a wave. Expanding artistic dialogues among diverse ethnic groups, within Southeast Asia and between East and West, have stimulated a unique creative response. At the ICA, acclaimed artist Ong Keng Sen draws together these strands to present an up-to-the-minute survey of contemporary arts in the region, at the same time community practice and social discourse, simultaneously resisting globalisation yet ambivalently popular.

The Insomnia season hints at brave new worlds where artists are retreating from the bastions of overt politics to a highly personalised and individual expression. Perhaps the political act is in the movement back into a personal freedom of expression. This is particularly so with artists who are in their twenties, no longer bound by historicisations which limit their territories and align their politics. These artists are liberated to enter into eccentric spaces which are free in their irreverence towards genre. The artists are glib and savvy, embracing the language of globalisation, consumerism, appropriation without guilt and with a deliberate naivete, which is refreshing in the face of the gloom and doom of world politics. Their ironic refusal to comment is the comment. This is the politics of fun where guilt becomes gilded.
