Shieko Reto is a visual artist and activist from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, whose work addresses the concerns of trans- and cross-cultural phenomena. Her work has been part of international exhibitions, including the Singapore Biennial.
Shieko’s residency is realized in the context of AR-Safe Haven Helsinki programme co-organised by Perpetuum Mobile and HIAP and funded by the City of Helsinki. Curated by Perpetuum Mobile.
I work mostly dealing with gender identity and expression, sexual orientation and also, identity transcending boundries. At HIAP I am working on my new zine, visuals and tinkering with GIF animation.
