This year I am participating as curator in the 2019 Pollination program initiated by The Factory (Vietnam). Driven by the need to create critically active and supportive artist-curator-community networks within Southeast Asia, and co-developed and co-sponsored with SAM Fund for Arts and Ecology (Indonesia), this year Pollination welcomes ILHAM Gallery (Malaysia) as its third organizational partner.

RESEARCH:
TOWARDS AN ANTHROPODECENTERED HUMAN-ANIMAL HISTORY

I am pursuing a PhD in human-animal history, focusing on human-elephant relations that rapidly evolved in the Malayan Peninsula between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. This involves interrogating philosophies in The Material Turn and its impact on non-textual archive.
