»Worlding It Otherwise or Else« explores how artistic work works.

Beyond the material conditions of production, artists may invent their own set of conditions and relations through which their work is rendered working.

And those circumstances are no less real, significant, or material for that matter.

Taking this supposed paradox as a starting point, the group exhibition assembles four artists that each in their own way define laws, narratives, and forces – effectively putting worlds into practice, making things visible that are there and that are not.

Her work has been shown at Ghost: 2561 Bangkok Triennale, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Asia Art Archive in America New York, and SALTS Basel.
