“Voice Of Equator”
Site-specific installation and video
In collaboration with: Yoshi Kresnamurti
“Voice of Equator” is based on Anggun’s experiences while he was an artist-in- residence in Nigeria. There, he was confronted with a community uncomfortable with cameras, expressing their bitterness and irritation, which made filming difficult for Anggun. In the midst of these difficulties, he was able to capture the noisy and busy atmosphere of Lagos, similar to Jakarta. According to Anggun, while Lagos and Jakarta are geographically distant, both cities have much in common. Anggun invites us to taste the rustle of his experiences through video installations that have been placed in a five- metre high tree house.
