The Waq Waq Tree (Version 2), is the second interpretation of the tale of the Waq Waq myth of Southeast Asia that has traversed Islamic and Buddhist cultures over the last centuries, demonstrating the fluidity and mutual influences of stories as they pass through time. This work continues the larger installation, The Women and the Waq Waq created for the Secret Archipeligo exhibition at Palais de Tokyo in Paris in 2015.
This work was conceived and made during my one-month long September 2016 artist residency in Bandung, Indonesia as a part of the Jakarta Contemporary Ceramics Biennale.
