Artists’ Film International
Fareha Khezal & Mak Ying Tung

29 November 2016 – 22 January 2017

A selection of international artists’ film exploring the potential of repetition.

In her metaphorical work Mirror of HeartFareha Khezal comments on how women in Afghanistan must stand up for their rights and reveal their talent to participate in socio-political, economic and cultural life. Meanwhile in Disarming (2013) Hong-Kong based Mak Ying Tung (b. 1989) records the intriguingly disturbing act of plucking out the spines of a cactus, thereby questioning issues of perception and social behaviour.

Fareha Khezal is selected by Centre for Contemporary Arts Afghanistan and Mak Ying Tung is selected by Para/Site Art Space, Hong Kong.
