This is a personal essay I wrote about my encounter with Anida Yoeu Ali's performance piece 'The Buddhist Bug'. After writing about it for Plural, I felt there was still more say to about the piece and my reaction to it. This is my most personal art writing.
I was commissioned by Wei-Ling Gallery to write the text for Yau Bee Ling's fourth solo exhibition. As part of my process, I interviewed the artist and the text incorporates both the artist's reflections and my observations of her new work.
An article I co-wrote about the #PulangMengundi phenomenon that sprung up in the wake of the midday polling day during Malaysia's 14th General Election. This article also appears in New Naratif: The First Year, an anthology of articles from New Naratif's first year of publication.
