My sister was interviewed for this lovely piece on Buah Zine, a publication connecting Indonesian artists.
It’s complicated, but my Indonesian heritage to me means inherited histories. The constant learning of these inherited histories and what it means to me. And at the same time, the undoing/unlearning of my own internalization. It is embracing the deep complexities, and accepting that parts of my Indonesian heritage will remain opaque even to myself in my journey of understanding. What my Indonesian heritage means to me will also be in flux as I define and redefine it for myself through my process of learning.
