GIRLS, THE MIC IS OURS!

Girls, the Mic Is Ours!, an all-female artists exhibition. This exhibition focuses on 14 artists whose works address not only their perspectives of being women but also their own junctures of livelihood as individuals. Although they have a shared group consciousness of feminine experience, each of the artists presents her individual stylistic approach and mediums by distinctly expressing her journey and insights.

26 artworks will be displayed by fourteen local and international artists, namely Agnes Lau, Amy Nazira, Cinta Ayuandrea, Erica Woo, Haz Yusup, Ho Mei Kei, Liu Hsin-Ying, Louise Low, Marisa Ng, Nor Tijan Firdaus, Ong Cai Bin, Raimi Sani, Trixie Tan, and Yuki Tham. Each artist has her own uniqueness in art-making, ranging from the expressions of personal milieu and portrayals of individuals and personal belongings to the experimentation of materials and objects into art. All in all, the canvases for the artists are the ‘mic’ that voices out their stories, worldviews, and even struggles in nowadays’ world context.

Girls, the Mic Is Ours! runs from  22nd May  to 5th June 2021 at G13 Gallery.

Artist Statement

CAGE is a form of refraining one’s physical freedom but TRAPPED is worse, it applies to both physical and mental state.

We are constantly TRAPPED by our surroundings, especially how we ‘care’ about surroundings perception on us, the social network platforms. In this tiny peripheral’s screen, every day 24/7, when you’re asleep when you’re using the toilet when you’re on the train when you’re working. Hey, we even embrace by giving these ‘TRAPPERs’ a title – influencers, to TRAPPING more individuals. Come to think of it, is our government one of the oldest forms of TRAPPER?

Today, we had never felt more TRAPPED than ever. Why? Is it due to the inability to travel freely? Inability to dine in? Inability to gather? To visit? We experience TRAPPED when knowledge is being refrained from our free will. Inaccurate information or fake news, how do we know? By having faith or unconditional trust?

In the end, it can only depend on ourselves to decide if we were TRAPPED or FREE. FREE yourself by finding the key, and knowledge is the key to be FREE.

Stephen Hawking was CAGE but that didn’t stop him from contributing to mankind’s development.
