- SURYODARMO Melati, Excuse-me, Sir !, 2009.

Performed at the Confucius temple, during ‘‘Artrend’’-performance art meeting’’ Tainan, Taiwan.

Excuse-me, Sir! was actually the result of my journey in Taiwan during the Artrend project. During the journey, I remember a text from Virginia Wolf: ‘‘As long as the sthinks of a man, nobody objects to a woman thinking.’’ This was about the dignity of a woman, and the bounds of freedom.

I decided to make a mask out of metal nails.

I decided to use the space at the Confucius temple which has the text about how to behave as women.

I moved slowly and become like a dark spirit in a beautiful space.

Duration: 3 hours
