Edouard Malingue Gallery is pleased to announce Samson Young’s joint exhibition, ‘Alternative Perspectives at a Crossroads’ at r/e projects, Madrid, with artist Manuel Ocampo. Although differing in practice, both artists explore the effects of colonialism in South East Asia, and are critical of the social, economic and political structures which bind and divide the region. Young will be showing his sound drawings, alongside the original song and installation ‘Coffee Cantata (Institute of Fictional Ethnomusicology)’, an adaptation of Bach’s little known composition ‘Coffee Cantata’.
