In times of conflict and uncertainty, one of the responses of contemporary artists has been a retreat from the horrors of our social-political realities into an inner world of dreams and the fantastic. Yet this trajectory is no simple escape from life. The dream-like worlds created by contemporary artists are also ways in which the rich repertoire of visual iconography in Asia are cleverly deployed to critique the current social-political fractures in oblique and suggestive ways beyond polemical positions.
