Howie Tsui: From swelling shadows, we draw our bows

 

The 16th title in the Power Plant Pages was produced in conjunction with the exhibition Howie Tsui: From swelling shadows, we draw our bows curated by Justine Kohleal and presented at The Power Plant 26 September 2020–3 January 2021.

In this exhibition, Tsui’s artworks blend classical and contemporary Chinese art, including mou hap (wuxia)—a popular martial arts genre advocating for resistance against oppressors that emerged in China during the mid-20th century—with Western popular culture to examine the complexities of the diasporic experience and question Chinese monoculturalism.

The publication includes a foreword by Gaëtane Verna, essays by Allison Collins and Su-Anne Yeo, and a conversation between Howie Tsui and Justine Kohleal.
