Merata Suara is an exhibition showcasing 5 commissioned artworks. What began as a simple offer to represent marginalised voices gradually evolved into a productive disorientation: our location partners became central to the creative process, leading the discourse as our artists assumed the role of platform providers. This rich and humbling 6-month exercise compelled us to question many of our political assumptions, leading to a synergy where collaborators became friends. 

The 4 installations and 1 performance in Merata Suara present conversations expressed in visual and spatial form. Each work represents a blending of artist and location partner standpoints, levelling the discursive field ("merata"). We hope to offer art that extends merely aesthetics considerations towards a collaborative micro politics that unsettles taken for granted binaries of power and powerlessness and the center-periphery divide.
