Ketemu’s artist in residents Alecia Neo and Filippo Fabricca of Love Difference inspired everyone in the Ketemu team during their stay. Their art practices are pillared by a good balance of passion and compassion, as well as being critical about processes. Filippo Fabricca’s extensive work with Love Difference allowed us to experience a high level of detail in planning and designing co-creation processes. Alecia Neo touched us in sharing the moving stories of the participants of her work and the creative journey that she had embarked with them.
During our Ketemu Aja! evening, we were graced by an local audience who shared interesting insights into the practices of Bali and Indonesia. It was a very intimate evening when Alecia and Filippo shared about their experiences. We will certainly miss them when they complete this residencies and return to their home countries.
