Ritual Everywhere But Nowhere – Buah Semangka Berdaun Sirih

Ritual Everywhere But Nowhere evokes the precarious tension between loss, separation and hoped of reconciliation experienced by an arrival in a new country. This work is a sentiment of mixing spirituality and sharing, and as we well know, things are simply better when they are shared.

“In your light I learn how to love.
In your beauty,
how to make poems.
You dance inside my chest,
where no one sees you,
but sometimes I do,
and that sight becomes this art.”


Performance of sharing Jajan Pasar (Indonesian-Australian delicacies street sweets) with support by Australia Indonesia Youth Association, Indonesian Welfare Association, Tony Twigg and Mayu Kanamori.
