Bound (2016) was made at the Institute of Technology Bandung (ITB) during my residency with the 4th Jakarta Ceramics Biennale, commissioned by the Orbital Dago gallery for their inaugural opening in May 2017 with thirteen artists.
"Perjalanan Senyap (A Quiet Journey) is an exhibition marking the beginning of Orbital Dago, where thirteen artists offer their own interpretations of the text to Marina Abramovic and Ulay’s performance art piece Nightsea Crossing. Here, the aim is develop and translate the meanings and historical value of the Nightsea Crossing into contemporary visual expressions by artists who today live in a midst of a barrage of production and vortex of imagery. It also attempts to create a link with issues of authority and the identity of artists as individuals, as advocated by Modern Classicism which continues to this day. "
