'Serani, Part I' by Antoine Loncle (11/11/2022 - 28/11/2022)
Antoine Loncle exhibition 'Serani, Part I' @Zontiga Taman Paramount
11 Nov - 28 Nov 2022
'Serani, Part I' is an exhibition by Antoine Loncle, one of the awardees of Zontiga's Photo Project Grant Award in 2021.
In this series, Antoine explores the definition of Serani identity, traditionally defined as an ethnicity for those who are the result of intermarriages between the Portugese and local Malaysians in the 16th century. Through interviews, historical research and photographic documentation, Antoine aims to produce his personal informed view that not only seeks to catalogue, but to also question the definitions that exist of the Serani identity.
'Serani, Part I' serves as an introduction of the work to the community, as well as an opportunity for those to support the project. 'Serani' is an ongoing long-term project which will conclude as a large-scale exhibition and photobook in 2023.
