「尋路探新」為M+首個聚焦南亞及東南亞地區的公眾活動。M+由成立之初,館藏已涵蓋南亞及東南亞藝術家和設計師的作品,但尚未推出重點介紹該地區的公眾活動。M+藉着「尋路探新」把焦點投向南方,廣邀南亞及東南亞等地,來自視覺藝術、設計及建築、流動影像領域的專家、策展人、研究員及思想家,演講並討論與他們作品、藝術機構及脈絡相關的重大議題和多樣性。除了向香港觀眾展示該地區的個人和藝術機構的重要項目,「尋路探新」也嘗試審視香港與這些南亞及東南亞地區在文化實踐方面的相似和交集之處。

 「尋路探新」是為期三天的活動,內容包括兩兩對談、簡短演說及小組討論,以此為交流平台,探討源自不同地域(從班加羅爾到孟加拉國,從日惹到胡志明市)、領域(視覺藝術、設計及建築、流動影像)和倡議(由自發以至機構推動的實踐)的各種意見。受邀講者與M+策展人的對談和討論,將關注以下議題:本地和區域的特質和歷史,以及跨國乃至全球的影響與流動,如何影響並塑造南亞及東南亞的文化生態及生產?在文化、歷史及地理方面,香港在此區域中如何定位?亞洲及其他地區的博物館及文化機構所制定的各種策展及研究框架,如何研究南亞及東南亞的藝術與設計實踐?

「尋路探新:探討南亞及東南亞」由姚嘉善(M+視覺藝術主策展人)及王蕾(M+設計及建築副策展人)策劃。

Anupama Kundoo

Anupama Kundoo

Founder, Anupama Kundoo Architects, India/Spain

Anupama Kundoo is Founding Principal of Anupama Kundoo Architect established in Auroville, Tamil Nadu, India, in 1990. Kundoo’s architectural practice focuses on material research to achieve an architecture of low environmental impact, and development of building technologies that are socio-economically beneficial. This has been demonstrated in projects such as the Wall House (2000), which was built by low-skilled workers and craftsmen with everyday materials and inventive techniques, and Full Fill Homes (2015), an affordable housing prototype built with ferro-cement boxes that functioned as the building’s structural foundation and furniture. A passionate advocate for sustainable architecture and building methods, Kundoo was awarded an honourable mention by the jury of the 2013 ArcVision International Prize for Women and Architecture for ‘her dedication when approaching the problem of affordability of construction and sustainability in all aspects’. Having built extensively in India, Kundoo has also worked and taught in various cultural contexts, including the Architectural Association School of Architecture, Cornell University, Escola Tècnica Superior d'Arquitectura de Barcelona, Barcelona, and Universidad Camilo José Cela, Madrid where she serves Chair of ‘Affordable Habitat’. Her works and writings have been widely featured in publications, including Phaidon World Atlas of Contemporary Architecture and AD Architectural Design, as well as exhibited in platforms such as the Venice Architecture Biennale (2012, 2016) and Architecture Biennale Chile (2017). Kundoo is currently working on a solo show at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebaek, Denmark scheduled for 2020. She received her Bachelor of Architecture from Sir J.J. College of Architecture, University of Bombay, India and her PhD from the Technische Universitaet Berlin, Germany.

Eko Prawoto

Eko Prawoto

Founder, Eko Prawoto Architecture Workshop, Yogyakarta, Indonesia

Eko Prawoto is an architect and educator based in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Characterised by contextualism, communality, craftsmanship, and social activism, his practice has made him an influential figure in Indonesian architecture. Prawoto’s conviction of enhancing locality as design strategy to integrate architecture with the social, cultural and environmental contexts often runs counter to the modernising ethos of contemporary architectural production. It is, however, pertinent to the peri-urban desa-kota (village-city) context of Indonesia. Prawoto was trained in architecture at Gadjah Mada University, Yogyakarta, Indonesia and Berlage Institute, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, under the mentorship of architects such as Y.B. Mangunwijaya, Herman Hertzberger, and Balkrishna Vithaldas Doshi. Prawoto has pursued teaching and practice of architecture as a lecturer at the Faculty of Architecture and Design in Duta Wacana Christian University, Yogyakarta, Indonesia since 1985, while practicing on his own and establishing Eko Prawoto Architecture Workshop in 2000. His practice is largely centred on the design of houses for his artists-friends, like Mella Jaarsma and Eko Nugroho, and cultural spaces, including Cemeti Art House and Langgeng Gallery. These buildings, built with reappropriated materials from abandoned structures and in collaboration with carpenters and stonemasons whom he nurtured over the years, are known for their open-ended designs that embrace future adaptations and the tropical climate. Prawoto has also actively designed for community development and post-disaster reconstruction, including the post-earthquake rebuilding of homes in Yogyakarta’s Ngibikan Village (2006), which was shortlisted for the 2010 Aga Khan Award for Architecture. Prawoto’s works and installations have been widely exhibited on various platforms, including Venice Biennale, Venice, Italy (2000), Echigo Tsumari Art Triennial, Niigata prefecture, Japan (2003), Anyang Public Art Project, Seoul, Korea (2005), Singapore Biennale, Singapore (2013) and Sonsbeek, Arnhem, the Netherlands (2016).
