Artists Cian Dayrit and Lizza May David, alongside co-curator Rafael Schacter, will talk about their forthcoming exhibition Motions of this Kind, opening at the Brunei Gallery, SOAS, on April 12. The first institutional exhibition in the UK dedicated to recent contemporary art practices in the Philippines, the exhibition examines the latency of knowledge between Europe and Southeast Asia, charting the historical and contemporary forces linking this archipelagic island chain with other key spheres of global power. Placing the theme of “belatedness” as the project’s principal concern however – as both a concept, reference, and argument – Motions of this Kind underscores the way time has been used both as a weapon of power and a tool of everyday resistance, a way of dominating the marginalised and creating alternative imaginations alike.
