Pale rider

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The imperative of Hoy Cheong's artwork is an examination and interrogation of spheres of influence. This involves the creation of ethical or critical situations, some of which have more or less immediate currency while others are more historically grounded. This essay considers two such works made in England in the same year, with one such sphere of interest being Oxford's Pit Rivers Museum's resident anthropological collection and museum architectural features which are unavoidably imbued and inflected with debates surrounding transnationality, postcolonialism, cultural memory. As with his other works, its context is not a site which demands 'solutions'; Hoy Cheong's 're-rendering' installation slight shifts (2004) represented the site as a space of artifice and a sociable site with new narratives which held a variety of other cultural considerations.
