Hold Infinity in the Palm of Your Hand is a multi-disciplinary exhibition presented in London as part of SEA ArtsFest 2014. This exhibition features a selection of works from Southeast Asian artists working in the fields of visual arts and moving image.
Taking its title from a line in Auguries of Innocence, a well-loved William Blake poem, Hold Infinity in the Palm of Your Hand is a curatorial exploration on the notion of ‘Grain’, which is a core theme of SEA ArtsFest 2014. For the festival, the word ‘grain’ references the idea of rice, which is a unifying commonality as a food staple in Southeast Asia, as well as a significant economic and cultural feature of the region otherwise vastly stratified and full of difference.
The artists participating in the exhibition all have roots or intimate connections in Southeast Asia, but are also living and working all over the world.
Artists include: Srey Bandaul, Sarah Choo, Debbie Ding and Nguyen Thanh Thuy in collaboration with the Landscape Quartet.
