Irwan Ahmett and Tita Salina

Subject

Description

Departing from a specific historical episode, the artists will explore the contemporary currency of gestures of sabotage in the context of the geopolitical frictions between Indonesia and Singapore. This research is part of Ring of Fire (2014-ongoing), a long-term project focused on natural disasters and geopolitical collisions named after the vast geographical area that runs from New Zealand to Chile stretching across Southeast Asia. By framing uncanny relationships between tectonic instability and political unrest, the pair seek to address conditions of vulnerability as well as the tensions related to environment, social justice, freedom of expression, and human rights among Southeast Asian countries.
