Lost Motherland is the title of Thai photographer Ampannee Satoh’s latest exhibition in KL.
Through her works, Patani-born Satoh is said to raise questions about the concept of homeland, diaspora and the daily lives of migrants.
The gallery’s press release states, “She produces images that draw from her own experiences navigating the particular configurations of neo-liberalism and ultra-nationalism in Patani.”
The exhibition comprises photography and video works, which “express and reveal the pain and agony of escaping from (the) motherland.”
Ampannee’s work is said to be a powerful reminder of the necessity of dignity and identity, and the true value of human life.
The show opens on June 7 at 7pm.
