He’s Going the “Long Distance”: Alvin Ong at Yavuz Gallery, Sydney

26 May 2020

“These periodic returns have made me see each ‘home’ in a different light. I think also, that this also has to do with our natural tendencies to shape-shift and code-switch as we move from one place to another. I am really interested in moments and modes of encounter when one culture meets another. Perhaps that is why the subjects are so hybridized and syncretized that one can’t really tell where one ends and another begins.”

Sasha Bogojev from Juxtapoz Magazine interviews Alvin Ong on his latest solo exhibition Long Distance.
