As participating artists in the inaugural cycle of SEA AiR, Hoo Fan Chon (Malaysia), Citra Sasmita (Indonesia), and Vuth Lyno (Cambodia) were each awarded a three-month-long residency at an art institution in Europe as well as funding for the creation of artworks.

In the first half of 2022, amidst Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and the ongoing pandemic, the artists took off from their home countries to conduct residencies: Hoo Fan Chon at HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme (Finland); Citra Sasmita at WIELS (Brussels, Belgium); and Vuth Lyno at Villa Arson (Nice, France).

This pioneering project celebrates 45 years of EU-ASEAN ties.
