From the partnership that brought to you Ketemu’s hallmark project “The Wax on Our Fingers”, Mintio and Kabul jointly created “Arus Berlabuh Kita – The Current/s We Call Home”, a site-specific installation presented at the Asian Civilisations Museum Singapore from August 18th 2018 until December 2nd 2018. This evocative installation tells the story about an imaginary seafaring adventure by children from transnational families. The artwork explores the seas that shapes the children histories, identities and collective futures.
This year’s Ubud Writers and Readers Festival (UWRF) 2018 brought for us a whirlwind of excitement: Ketemu’s Founding Artist, Kabul, created the festival’s artwork and launched his solo exhibition Anonymous Ancestors hosted by Casa Luna Ubud. Re-contextualizing Balinese subjects from photographic archives, the nameless faces in his works reflects the absence of personal identity through the lens of photographers from the colonial era. Want to find out the artworks of Kabul’s artworks are up for collection? Get in touch with us for more details.
Crossing over into the new year is another exhibition of Kabul’s works presented by CushCush Gallery titled “The Garden” at The American Club Singapore, from November 7th 2018 – January 7th 2019. Using his signature technique – cyanotype printing; Kabul harvests materials from the natural environment of Bali to create imprints for his artworks.
