Gajah Gallery's MONUMENTA: In Lightness opens up discourse on light in Southeast Asia


For its group exhibition MONUMENTA: In Lightness, Gajah Gallery touched on the organic strands of everyday life. It featured paintings, sculptures and installations by fourteen artists from across Southeast Asia. The large-scale works explored how light becomes part of life through vision, nature, lifestyle and community. Considering our urbanised society where light pollution is rife, the exhibition reminded us to reflect on the form and rediscover the roots of illumination.

In this interview, curator Eya Beldia speaks about the formation of the exhibition and her process of selecting the works in response to personal and cultural examinations of light.
