Pagar Makan Tanaman

Slip casted glazed semi porcelain | Variable dimension | 2008

This was displayed at a group exhibition I participated a few years back. It’s actually an interactive artwork. The title literally means “fence that eats the plant”, It’s a metaphor in Indonesia that illustrates when people destroy things they should keep safe. The layout resembles a group of islands that has trees, the metaphorical trees are made of food that can easily taken and eaten. This illustrates the condition of Indonesia’s forest that is reducing fast and how people are taking this problem lightly.
