Singapore Biennale 2016

Two of my works from the Koboi Project – Koboi Balik Lagi and Kedualan Si Koboi have been selected for the Singapore Biennale 2016: An Atlas of Mirrors.  The two works which are comprised of total of 14 images will be installed along two appropriated movie soundtracks and a terracotta Hindu icon from the early 20th century. This icon, pictured above, represents the Puranic myth in which Lord Ganesha wins a miraculous mango from his brother Lord Murugan by recognizing that his parents Lord Shiva and Mother Parvathy were not just a part of his universe but, also all of it. In my installation, this icon occupies a highly liminal space between sacred icon, museum artifact and contemporary art work, as it articulates the metonymic  underpinnings of my work.
