Shieko Reto

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 realised in the frame of the Safe Haven Helsinki project co-organised by Perpetuum Mobile and HIAP – Helsinki International Artist Programme with the support from 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.
