Merata Suara was an exhibition that showcased 5 commissioned art pieces. What began as a simple offer to represent marginalized voices gradually evolved into a productive disorientation; our location partners became central to the creative process that lead the discourse where the artists assumed the role of platform providers. This rich and humbling 6-month excersise compelled us to question many of our political assumptions that lead to a synergy where collaborators became friends.

My daughter, Teja and I were part of of a 12-day flash artist-in-residency called NAMAMAHAY. For our project, we collaborated with tile and mosaic artisans at Las Casas to make bespoke mosaic plates. The plates depict stories of the past, present and future surrounding Casa Lubao. To fulfil the purpose of the plates, we hosted a dinner party at Casa Lubao where we cooked nasi lemak, a popular Malaysian dish. Mosaic artisans: Limuel B. Albanian, Maricel Fadul and Jomar Suarez (aka Youmae).
