Two months ago I collaborated with Indonesian performance artist Ferial Afiff for her new work. In this work, she hides herself in a pink wooden box and puts herself in the middle of some certain environments, where the pink box seems out of place, perhaps disturbing, but yet ignored. The performance would be presented in three different media: video recording, a series of photographs, and an actual performance at the exhibition space. I collaborated with her as a photographer.
Ferial, born in Saudi Arabia in 1982, was one of the commissioned artists for a group exhibition titled Space and Image, organized by by Ciputra Artpreneurship Center. The exhibition was held in their newly built gallery in Kuningan area in Jakarta, in April–May 2010. The production of the work was done in several places around Yogyakarta, in March 2010. I only post these photographs now because Ferial didn’t want the work to be shown before the exhibition.
