Repel Revel is an exhibition as proposition — what if one way to repeal present impositions on queer lives is to not only reveal future imaginative possibilities for our ways of being, but to revel in them? The deep entrenchment of binary gender formations into our descriptions of family, country and capital demands visible, wilder counter-scripts for the flourishing of other lives. We have to deconstruct the naturalisation of gender that the nationalism and capitalism has imposed on our life.
We ask, what are our genders after this current time? What would post-authoritarian kinship be like, if we make families after our own unnatural selves? How else will Asia and Southeast Asia change, when our expressions of intimacy, attachment, commitment, sociality, change? What will they change to? Because we can accept speculation about the future, but can no longer accept the superstition of the present.
Held at Grey Projects, the exhibition features Denise Yap, Divaagar, Jerome Kugan, Marylyn Tan, and Yen Phang.
