“you visit my grave – my tomb will make you dance.
– be sure to bring a tambourine.”
This work focuses on themes of remembrance and narrative history that create points of connection between the past and the present, between Fujian Province and the Straits of Malacca to the City of Sydney of Peranakan culture. Through discarded objects – emptied incense case Perankan cultures and personal experiences, Jayanto created hanging installations that purpose a memorial of connection to his late mother as a gift in Lunar New Year. This is a healing that creates a bridge from the past to a current living that embraces a diverse future in celebration of our contemporary Australia.
