About the Artist

Ang Xia Yi (b.1996) is an artist from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Her practice focuses on history, memory, identity politics and the emotional consequences of colonialism and its resulting socio-political legacies in archipelagic Southeast Asia. She embraces a mixed-media approach to her work extending from photography, drawings, paintings, book-making to archival intervention using everyday materials such as textiles. Her interest lies within the vernacular aspects of material culture, viewing materials as carriers of intimacy, trauma and violence that transcend beyond generations.


In 2017, She briefly pursued her BA in Fashion Journalism at Central Saint Martins, London.
