‘Asylum’ listed by a-n magazine

May 2011

Part of the Brighton Festival Artists Open Houses 2011, this exhibition explores the various meanings of the word 'asylum' (or 'suaka' in the Indonesian language): a place of sanctuary, the offer of a safe haven for those fleeing persecution and a place where people suffering from insanity are sent. This second UK one-woman show by Indonesian artist Grace Siregar will be a fascinating interplay between the serenity of this 19th century church environment and Siregar's engaging and challenging work in video, paintings, sketches and installations. Also with performance art at the Private View on Friday 6th May at 6.30PM.
