KIEN SITU X ASHLEY CHANG
Join us for the final weekend of Earthen featuring an unmissable artist talk between BETTER NATURE artist Kien Situ and YouTube Cultural and Trends Lead, Ashley Chang.
Kien Situ is a multidisciplinary Asian-Australian artist based in Sydney. His practice spans architecture, sculpture, film and installation. With a thematic focus on ruin, distance and time; it exists to challenge, deconstruct and meditate on notions of space, heritage and identity as the ‘other’ in society. Reflecting on his Sinospheric background (Chinese/Vietnamese diaspora), he explores interrelationships between geography, matter and identity in his new commission for Earthen.
Ashley Chang is the APAC Culture & Trends Lead at YouTube. Prior to joining Google he was foundation Editor-in-Chief of digital pop culture publication Pedestrian.TV, Senior Editor of ABC iview and a Social Media Lead for ABC Television. He has been enlisted as a cultural expert for the Sydney Morning Herald, The Guardian, B&T and the ABC. He has written about pop culture for the likes of Dazed and Confused and Monster Children magazine and has appeared as a podcast guest for the likes of The Guardian, Audible Originals, Triple J’s Hack.
