My practice revolves around political and socio-economical concepts, raising the issues of cultural imperialism, Javanisation, and indigenous empowerment. Utilising performative and contemporary elements of art-making, I'm reclaiming the art space as an act of decolonisation and resistance against hyper-capitalistic culture.

 

By contextualising the material such as the batik fabric, tea, receipt et al., my practice reframes the archives of Indonesian history as a critique of blind nationality and chauvinism, provoking the viewers into questioning the canon and the propaganda; the colonised and the coloniser; the oppressed and the oppressor.
