The work will progressively materialise in the gallery. The artist’s bilingual poem of four lines, “Rivers and lakes / Tanah dan air / Land and water / Sungai sejarah” were re-ordered in 24 permutations, creating 24 poems. Each line, consisting of geographical features and elements, contains multiple cultural associations. Across eight days during the exhibition, the artist will shuffle a playlist of the 24 voice recordings and broadcast his father’s readings. Widjaja will listen and trace his father’s writing using a transfer sheet, eventually covering the wall with this repeated text-as-image.
