LIKE THE BANANA TREE AT THE GATE
Leading Malaysian contemporary artist Yee I-Lann’s digital photo-collage series examines the folkloric Pontianak, a vengeful female spirit with long black hair, and the ubiquitous banana tree in which she resides. In reframing this supernatural witch into a contemporary figure, the artist masterfully probes issues of social image, gender, power and Malaysia’s socialpolitical landscape.
