Boedi Widjaja's solo presentation, "Imaginary homeland: kang ouw (一)" coincided with Singapore Art Week 2018 (17–28 January) and the artist's commissioned project for State of Motion 2018 (12 January–11 February). It remains on view until 21 February 2018.

The 'Imaginary homeland' series stemmed from the artist’s experience as a migrant living out his ethnic homeland’s history through mass media images and the imaginary. In this current iteration, he contemplates the notion of home through the fictional ancient Chinese world of 'kang ouw' (江湖), often portrayed in martial arts films that the artist grew up with in the early 1980s.
