Chiang Mai Photo Festival 2015

The inaugural edition of Chiang Mai Photo Festival (CMPF) 2015 runs from 20 to 28 February. The event is hosted and organised by the photographic art division of the Faculty of Fine Arts, Chiang Mai University (CMU).

I am involved in this edition as the guest curator, presenting a show titled Documenting as Method: Photography in Southeast Asia at CMU Art Center.

Satellite exhibitions and events open throughout the entire month of February.

A key component of the festival is the series of public talks held at House of Photography. We have been able to do so without a luxurious budget, only because of the generosity of our speakers and the various institutions that made their presence possible. These institutions include Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (Singapore), Hong Kong Design Institute and Maranatha Christian University (Bandung).

Curator: Zhuang Wubin

Our understanding of photography in Southeast Asia is inflicted by the reductive binary of photography versus art, which morphs into the other binary of straight photographers versus artists who use photography. Documenting as Method: Photography in Southeast Asia proposes a renewed focus on the process of documenting as a productive means to move beyond these reductive binaries, which have resulted in the amnesia of many practitioners from this region, at least since the 1950s.

Featuring works created from 1958 to the present moment, the 13 artists from Southeast Asia selected here approach documenting as method in three overlapping ways: documenting as looking and thinking; documenting as cataloguing; documenting as world-making. In parallel and diverging ways, they use photography as an embodied and embedded medium to experience realities or to create fantasies.
