In conjunction with 'Come cannibalise us, why don't you?' | Erika Tan. 'Sila mengkanibalkan kami, mahu tak?'
Emerging from an ongoing discussion between NUS Museum curators and artist Erika Tan since 2009 about the multitudinous potentials of the museumized object, the colloquially titled ‘Come cannibalize us, why don’t you?’ is an artist’s response that revisits through re-use, re-enactment and repatriation, the artefacts and writings from, and referenced in, the exhibition Camping and Tramping Through The Colonial Archive: The Museum in Malaya (2011-2013). In addition, newer artworks developed by the artist that include films, objects and works on paper will be shown alongside. The guiding principle being a form of aesthetic cannibalism.
