Ritual Ceng Beng, Phoenix Rises from The Ashes – Metro Arts Brisbane

The ‘Ritual Ceng Beng’ exhibition responds to a photograph taken in the 1970s, capturing the traditional Chinese Ceng Beng ritual performed by a family at a cemetery in North Sumatra, Indonesia. The exhibition incorporates food, performance, and mixed media installation with reference to ideas of identity, migration, and cross-cultural histories.
