- SURYODARMO Melati, Conversation with Black, 2011.
A Conversation with Black is a performance work which is based on the idea of the psychology of geometrical aspect of objects. I am focusing on human being as an object of political and cultural strategies. The relationship between displacement as a fact and the shifting of political and cultural behavior are obvious throughout the history.
A Conversation with Black is an two-hours performance, using a specific room installation. The space is arranged to be a still-room, with black carpet on the floor and a rectangular cut of the carpet is attached at the wall. I slipped and hung behind the carpet hung on the wall.
Duration: 2 hours.
Performed at ‘‘Absence’’, Manila Contemporary, Manila, The Philipines, 2011.
‘‘Jogja Biennal XI’’, Jogjakarta National Museum, Jogjakarta, Indonesia, 2011.
