THE PONTIANAK RESIDES WITHIN: FEMININITY AS MONSTROSITY
27 June | Amanda Nell Eu in dialogue with Tania De Rozario
In media depictions of femininity, deviations from the norm often lead to the monstrous. In this session, under the auspices of their shared love for the Pontianak, we bring together two artists who have been embarking on creative detours from this trodden path.
Amanda Nell Eu is at the forefront of a new generation of Malaysian filmmakers. Tania De Rozario is an established artist from Singapore who has developed a multidisciplinary body of work that fuses concerns with gender, sexuality and the politics of art. In this session, they will discuss the creative potential of being from yet apart from oneâ€™s own culture, the outsider disposition during coming of age, female ghosts within Southeast Asian mythology â€“ and how these threads lead to feminist statements through art.
