a glimpse of minor congregation: an order of 4 people, sitting in a row with their own different posture & gesture. inspired by an old malay traditional dikir barat performance, the works are trying to connect the artist’s gender and the reversal of the gender dominance of the performances (dikir barat was dominated by male). furthermore, their postures & gestures resemble the moment of longing/waiting, the subtle indications that there is something that needs to be done.
