Kejora by Charis Loke
14 June 2019 @ 11:00 am - 16 June 2019 @ 5:00 pmFree
An ongoing project, KEJORA is a collection of illustrated microfiction rooted in Southeast Asian cultures and issues. These tales explore the cracks and dissonances in our shifting societies. They ask us to consider what we look away from in our everyday lives, to imagine kinder, gentler futures.
Ink paintings are exhibited alongside stories, sketches, and works-in-progress. Many of these pieces were completed during the SEA Artist Residency at Rimbun Dahan. Originals and gallery-quality prints available; donations welcome. Proceeds help fund an upcoming residency in Iceland.
Charis Loke is a book and editorial illustrator. Drawing upon literature and visual culture, she makes pictures that evoke wonder and curiosity. Her work has been recognised by the Society of Illustrators Los Angeles, 3×3 Magazine, and exhibited in the US, UK, Nepal, and Malaysia. www.charisloke.com.
