gilang mentawai tawuran toba afterbirth
  home | biography | contact    


Afterbirth is an enlightening experience I have had in Lombok which later turned out to be a personal project. Every human being, landscape and object I have encountered during the trip appears in the form of perception. They embody the metaphor of birth, work and death, and they seem to appear everywhere I step my feet on.

How a small child crawls on sand, it reminds me of a baby looking for a nipple. On the other hand, a vein swollen above the arm somehow speaks to me as a work ethic, and a small temple on the beach reminds me of the concept of God as my final destination.

Had I not been born into this world, these dramas wouldn’t have taken place in my life.
