Present Measures: Yaya Sung

2 May 2019 - 25 May 2019

Location: PROJECT SPACE & SPARE ROOM

Present Measures is a series of artworks that acknowledge and pay homage to the long history of female leadership in Indonesia. The work uses sourced black-and-white photographs from the 1959 edition of Api Kartini, an Indonesian magazine published by the women’s rights organisation, Gerwani.

Present Measures embellishes and decorates these images for solidarity and, in a desperate effort to acknowledge these women, draw our attention back to their tragically silenced voices.
