Art Jakarta 2019: Persecution
"The seeds of hatred lay deep within the humans; under certain circumstances and with particular intensity, those seeds may germinate into real, actual violence." In this series, the distinctive arabesque paper-cuts are still dominating my works, each part made in the shape of an AK-47 assault rifle. I arranged them so much as to resemble an image of a skull - which translates into the analogy of unadulterated human, stripped bare of his/her worldly attributes. As with the infamous AK-47, I sees how the weapon has become closely associated with massive acts of violence. Given the right situation, this kind of aggression is very likely to occur, especially when politics gain leverage with all their ego-maniacal motives and interests.
